Does the A3 TDI SPORTBACK 5-DOOR HAVE THE SAME SPRINGS AS THE 3 DOOR MODEL ?

Are the S3 springs ok to fit on a tdi,i like the ride height on the s3,or will they not fit?

Anyone got s-line springs for sale off sportback?

Yes they are diifferent between the following

3dr v 5 dr, This is because the back of the sportbacks are heavier so need a different spring rate.

FWD v Quattro, kinda obvious, they are quite a bit different at the rear.

FWD v Quattro - They aren't as different as you might imagine, most of the parts are the same - the actual hub being the main difference, unlike the 8L where whey were completely different. As you say though, the weight makes a difference too.

There are diffferences for axle weight your right blazin, The TDI's are heavier than the petrols so the spring rates are different, lowering your car used to be easy in the old days!:)

As far from JBS as possible !
I have the complete suspension set up from my 2006 A3 2.0 PD140 qauttro laying in my garage. It was removed when i had coil overs fitted. PM me if interested. To answer peoples questions you will need diesel qauttro suspension as a diesel is more nose heavy and a quattro has a different suspension alignment then a FWD car does.
