    Ive got a bog standard A4 1.9 TDI not even an se,im thinking of lowering it with a set of springs only.

    If i get 35 mm spring kit will my car sit as low or lower than a TDI Sport model?

    Or is 40mm be better?
    Dont know how true this is but ive been told i can use my original shockers?

    Finally i was advised after the lowering get the wheel alignment checked.

    I was also told as long as i dont go lower than 40mm camber will be ok,is this true?

    2002 A4 TDI B6.

    If you go 35mm lower then it will be lower then the Sport model. It's always best to get the alignment and camber checked after changing almost anything on the suspension.

    It may sit higher at the back compared to the front.
