    Hi, this is quite common on Avants with this setup. On the Audizine forums a lot of people have trimmed down the rubber bump stops that the rear springs sit in to reduce the ride height further.

    From what I've read it will drop a little more once settled but the back still remains a bit higher which has caused some people to shorten the rubber stops as mentioned.

    i had a similar issue with my A4 Saloon. I installed a full H&R lowering kit and the front was noticeable lower than the rear. Loved how the rear looked on lowered springs however the front was too low and it was causing issues when going over speed bumps. In the end i had to buy another set of front springs with a less aggressive drop to bring the front up slightly. The car now sits perfectly and i can get over speed bumps no problem.

    are they the right springs as they are different variations for each car depending on axle weight
