    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Well the calipers were fully sealed to prevent paint getting in, i assuming the hight bake temp required to bake powder coat cause a pressure build up inside and propped a piston out, 1 from each caliper. Its the only thing i can think of really as you normally need an airline to remove the...

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Yes its annoying really as i have a spare pair of eibachs in the garage, but looking at how its sitting on the snapped side is about what the eibachs would give me roughly, and tbh its a little low for my liking, so ill just looking at replacing with like for like i think. Also picked up a...

    Easy job fella, just need to drop the rear 3 exhaust hangers and unbolt the drop links so nice and straight forward. I fitted mine in half hour although was on a ramp. Deffo worth doing mine handles 110% better now

    B7 possible quattro conversion

    Thanks for the info fella, but all things considered im quite content with my FWD as is. Although it would be the daddy of retrofits and a good challenge its just not necessary for me or particularly economically viable on a 14 year old car, regardless of how much i love it! Lol

    The one I've just fitted was £170 and non genuine. I paid around £370 for a genuine for the other side last time. Thought about taking a gamble on a second hand one but i had concerns about it being butched around the pinch bolt

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    When i lowered mine, i only fitted the front eibach sportline springs. The rear sits perfect imo on the stock Sline setup. I know some B7s especially avants can have different ride heights depending on quattro etc...

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Yeah your probably right there, i dove around a mini roundabout that has a small hump on it and noticed that the rear seemed to almost hop slighlty as i transitioned left to right over the hump. Once the wallet has recovered im definitely going down the B8 route!

    The wheel bearings are a piece of cake fella and you can purchase them in two forms. Just the bearing, or the bearing pre pressed into the hub. After that the hub/bearing assemly simply bolts to the knuckle.

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Some one did put a parts/price list on here a while ago, but i think the price has shot up since then. Best bet would be to go aftermarket. My 034 motorsport one turned up today. Come with hardware and some lovely billet bush hangers and poly bushes. I paid around £260 for mine. Hopefully get...
