    I am tring to find a picture of RS4 (B5) suspension, does anyone know if the set up is the same between these three models?

    Simple question if I have an A4 Avant Sport will RS4 suspension accesories fit?
    I am taling about struts specifically.

    cheers

    looking at the rs4 the wheels seem to track further apart than a4, try model specific springs and shocks for your a4 from koni, bilstein, eibach,,, or even better that and get coil overs there was a group buy on fk coilovers only last week maybe you can still get in on that.

    yeah the track is wider, partly down to the wheel choice, I am more interested in the dimension of wishbones/droplinks etc and how they compare to teh A4.
    I have been offered a 2nd hand set of coilovers from an RS4 and need to find out the difference.
    They have a different spring rating as the V6 is heavier, also the lowering range is smaller as the RS4 is already lower. ........
    but do they fit?
