    Hi

    I have a 98 a4tdi quattro avant. The shocks are getting towards the point where they will need replacing soon so I am looking into what to replace with.

    Do all quattros have the sport suspension ? This one does but I am finding it difficult to understand the replacement options.
    I dont want to lower it any further and dont really want a very hard setup, it is used mainly for my wife to commute in, so dragging on the floor etc is unnecessary. When I look at things like koni they say that the quattro kit drops it by 30mm, but cant tell me if that is compared to a standard car or one with sports suspension.

    Anyone got a suggestion for a direct like for like replacement? but at reasonable prices ?

    thanks

    The drop is compared to normal, the sport is around 25mm lower than std.

    So a 30mm drop will be hardley noticable in comparison the sport spec suspension
