    [Audi S5 2009 V8 4.2l] Front subframe adjustment

    The B8 subframe is the same for the cars, only difference is where you mount the engine mounts when putting it back on an A4/A5. Unscrew all 12 bolts to make it move . I took pictures and make them for you. Best go back and release the 12. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    [Audi S5 2009 V8 4.2l] Front subframe adjustment

    You also obviously need to take off the lower wish bone or loosen it for dome slack. By the way, why do you need to move it? If its not warped nor bent, its easier to get a proper laser realignment than fiddle with the subframe. With a power tool its not a long job though. Regards Sent...

    No you don't.There are mainly 16mm bolts and don't hold the engine nor gearbox. Within the subframe sits the steering rack. Easy job,doesn't take too long with a power tool.

    50mm won't drop it too much. You will have 2 finger gap and can almost see all your wheel outline. Sits better with spacers too. I used to have AP coilovers and was quite low. Eibach Sportline came almost close to my then set up. Only difference now I feel is the the car wallows slightly on...

    Cheap and naff coilovers, yes , but Aps hand on heart, they are not far from Eibach springs and Sportline struts which I too am running on.

    Depends on how low you want to go. Best get decent brands if you want coilovers. Spring and strut set up is fixed but gives an all comfortable ride. Not plugging business I have some AP coilovers for sale. I have had the two set ups and will say both have advantages . Coilovers come trumps...

    Back end wobble?!

    On wheel alignment , a good shop will tell you once it's been on the machine on whether it needs its or not. My money is on your shocks. That's just my take. Had the same issue of a wobbly rear on hitting a bump or on a bend and it was my left rear shock. This was on a Quattro 8L

    Back end wobble?!

    MOT won't check alignment. It only advises uneven wearing of tyres. You may have duff rear shocks. Best check shocks and do alignment and balancing too. Never hurts.
