Help* suspension question?!?

im running aftermarket coilovers on my A4 B8 SE with 19s and 235/35 tyres, the fronts are fine HOWEVER,

The rears are NOT! The suspension is at its highest adjustment but it's still too low!? Iv been informed that the perch is upside down on a4 b8's but even when adjusting it didn't seem to make any difference,

My question is, to get a little more lift in the back end could I replace the aftermarket spring with the OEM one? Or replace the aftermarket shock for the OEM one?!

Would this give me the extra 10-20mm height I want?

Mate I'm not in the UK but I would go and speak to either a suspension specialist or seek out someone like Eibach if they are anywhere close, to get some advice. Can't hurt to get an opinion from someone who is directly involved in that specialty area. Sure I'm not saying anything you haven't already considered.

If I remember right Damian, it's a Saloon.

Yes JG is right it's a saloon @DPM

I might just get lowering springs and be done with the coilovers all together. The ride is too harsh, I miss the comfort.

Any recommendations for springs? Basically Iv for 19" rotors with 235/35 tyres, and I want it the same if not 10mm lower than what the S-line black editions sit.

Thanks

Thanks

Would coilovers be better long term?
Im not fussed about the cost of either, I just only want the job done once so happy to go coilovers if it has more benefit/more comfort than springs...

From what you've said I'd say a good quality matched springs and shock skit will be the best option for you.
