    im having my A4 TDI (B6) lowered today using koni springs,standard shocks 40mm,ive heard when putting the front suspension back together,hand tighten,then get the full weight of the car on the suspension,then re-tighten......this (if true) states if done like this will stop knocks/squeals from the front suspension. Stated in: A4 MODS.

    How true is this? any of you guys done the lowering of your B6 ? ANY TIPS?
    Any issues with camber at 40mm ?

    You are supposed to finger tighten and then put car on ground and tighten the bottom damper nut so that the bushes are not damaged.

    I did this another way as access would be a huge pain in the bum without a 4 post lift.

    I put a jack under the shock bolt and raised the suspension until it was at a level it would be when sitting on the ground and then tightened the bolt.

    My tip is soak that top pinch bolt in a shit load of WD40,it can be a right Bastardo to get out.
