Answers and questions: audi a3 rear suspension spring
Im just going to start this thread now and update it as I go. Thanks to A3 Yuppie Ive taken his old S-line spring
s (he put on the Euro spring
s) and begun the install on my premium suspension
setup. He had a 2006 S-line wout open sky. Ive got a 2007 premium with open sky (which adds some weight). I started yesterday morning by swapping out the rear spring
s which was a super easy switch (pics and install
Quote ORIGINAL grover The front still rides higher but I think thats the norm with the typical S line suspension. My Euro-spec S-Line springs are that way too although the difference between the front and the rear gaps is less than that on the US-spec S-Line springs. I think thats justthe way the suspension is setup for almost all FWD cars.
I am leaning towards Koni FSD shocks and would like to know what kind of spring
s to get. I have the base suspension
and would like to keep the height the same or about .5 inches lower. I drive in the snow and am pleased with the appearance of the A3 as it is so I do not needwant much lowering. I want a stock or better ride qualitycomfort. I want more responsive handling steering less squat and dive
Newbie here Just got an A3 2.0 upgraded to 8x18 wheels. Whats the best suspension
I can get that wont drop the car too much be too harsh cause the wheels to rub. Something a little sportier.I heard that Eibach was one of the better. Thanks -Anthony.
Lets just say Ive paid for my suspension education. Price of admission for fun. I should have mentioned that the front adjustables are reached through the top using a 1 flat blade screwdriver because the Koni adjuster wont fit through the cool A3 trim price above the strut. The rears have to be removed from the car to be adjusted. Stasis Street Sports are the Konis setup by Stasis for their optimum
So I just bought a new 2.0T A3 last week and was wondering if anyone recommended any reasonable suspension
upgrades or modifications which I might consider getting right off the bat Its not an S-Line so its pretty basic I think. Thanks Joe
If you would not consider going with at least S-Line springs not too many suspension options. For 1000 I would recommend S-Line springs (lightly used from another A3 S-Line) Koni FSD and Neuspeed rear stabilizer bar. Does not include installation costs.
RSB Neuspeed (25mm hollow) and the stock Sport setup httpforums.vwvortex.comzerothrea...ostid34932159 Quote 2)How come no one comments on the front sway bar so much Does the Neuspeed front sway bar make any difference Contrary to what youd think a rear anti-roll bar reduces understeer by increasing the rear slip angle while a front bar does the opposite. So our understeer-prone front-heavy A3s
Im about to get my A3 2.0T lowered. I dont have the S-line so my car sits a little too high. I contacted a local shop here in the SF bay area and they quoted me the follwing (300 for labor). what would you do Stage Notes Fr. Lowering rear

I have a set of S-Line spring

Hey A33333 I have a complete Sline suspension with 24K miles from my 06 sitting in Seattle (Bellevue actuallY) yours for free pickup or freight. This includes the rear sway-bar with upgraded poly bushings. The Sline springs are a little (1) lower and the shocks and bar are stiffer as well. Ive driven the premium package cars and they are very Buicky by comparison. Full Disclosure I like stiff suspensions
Is it worth upgrading from A3 2.0 Sline suspension
to H&R Coil Over suspension
is totally up to you on the KWs. Here is a picture of my car....there is still more drop in the rear and tons more drop in the front. For the street this is a good position though Thus for me and for others thinking about installing coilovers the choice is Why swap out a perfectly good suspension that I already paid for when I bought the car So I added what I estimated to be the cost of the audi
Hello I thought I introduce My self. I dont currently own an A3 but have driven my friends wifes car and I was impressed with it. I have been looking to buy a new car I think I have settle on the A3. I have searched (also read the A3 newby tread)and I am familiar with the spring
shock coilovers and swaybar options for the A3 I even saw a rear
strut bar and sub frame reinforcement somewhere. I plan
Im looking for a set of spring
s from the S-Line sport suspension
. My A3 is the premium which unfortunately has the basic stock spring
s. Id like to firm up my ride and drop the height just a little. I might add the Koni FSDs in the near future but i wanted to start here. Feel free to reply or PM me if youve got a set you replaced with coil-overs or some superior setup. Im based in SoCal but would be happy to also pay for shipping... Thanks.
The 2.0T S-Line setup definitely comes with a RSB. I have the OEM S-Line RSB sitting on a garage shelf as I replaced it with a Neuspeed 25mm (hollow) RSB. As for the Premium package suspension setup I dont know (1) whether there is a RSB or (2) if there is one whether it is different than the SportS-Line RSB. If there isnt a RSB at all adding one will (1) noticeably reduce understeer and body roll
How have any of you swapped rear
shocks yourself Id rather not pay someone 100hour for this otherwise easy job. Ive got some Koni FSDs to install and the rear
s should be easy but access to the lower shock bolt requires the coil spring
to be removed (cant get a socket on the bolt head otherwise). My threaded rod-type spring
compressor wont fit because of the large lower arm dimensions. My next idea
I solved my problem. I was able to separate the lower control arm from the hub upright by removing the fore-aft bolt behind the brake disc. I used a couple of large hose clamps to keep the spring from extending and used my floor jack to slowly lower the arm from the upright. The spring was then easy to remove for access to the lower shock bolt. The job required 16mm 18mm and 21mm sockets that dont
I dont know much about the suspension
components on cars... I checked the newbie forum but it never answered whether or not there are suspension
upgrades that will fit the 3.2 Quattro version of our beloved A3. I know there are plenty of you front-wheel drive four-banger lovers out there with sweet looking drops... I defentily want to make my wheels fill up the wells better and get a much firmer rideless
He did the Euro springs with Koni FSD shocks Front wheel gap went from 5 fingers down to 3. rear wheel gap went from 4 to 3 There is also an H&R kit available that will have a more dramatic drop.
Well it wouldnt hurt to try the stock shocks with Euro springs and replacing the shocks later wont cost much extra but you ought to check with Frank ( angryrican66) the 3.2 mod expert on fourtitude. I have FSDs with sport springs Neuspeed rear bar on my 2.0 and I think its the perfect street setup. And it will probably cost you about 1500 if you decide to go this way - parts install.
Ive been researching across the board but cant seem to find a good evaluation of which kit is the best. Looking for increased handling but still comfortable as daily driver and lowered more than stock sport suspension

So I am thinking about trading in the TT and the A6 and just having a a3 kinda like if the a6 and tt did its baby would look like an a3. Any ways I have searched the faq and I am really interested. I have a couple quick questions for you guys. 1. How much difference in weight between the open sky and normal. 2. Bose or non bose. I can hook up a complete stereo system myself. 3. I am thinking Revo tune

Heres a good thread about common A3 issues httpforums.vwvortex.comzerothreadid3366758 1.Ive heard estimates as high as 200 lbs for Open Sky but nothing official. Id guess about half that. I like mine - no tint butI live where its grey skies for half of the year so the extra light is nice. 2. I agree that Bose isnt worth the extra - from an audi
So now i saved some money to finally get a coilover and im a real noob with cars. I have a 2007 iblis white prem pkg. After getting the coilovers and lowering my car i wouldnt have problem riding with 4 ppl in my car right( when my parents visitbrother) I live in san francisco. Are these coilovers good httpforums.fourtitude.comzerothreadid3749516 How much for installing them and aligning the wheels
Quote ORIGINAL mkimjoon btw where does the RSB go under the car in the rear or in the trunk An RSB is a rear Sway Bar (more accurately called a rear anti-roll bar). A rear suspension brace might go in the trunk between the attachment points of the suspension on each side although the A3 attachment points are all beneath the body. I doubt that youd feel the effect of a suspension brace unless you were
Ok guys - Im sure you are sick of hearing grover talk about spring
s as its been the major topic of my conversationsposts. Well today I went into the dealer and tried to do a little investigating before putting anything on my car. Ok - so ive got a 07 MT loaded but NOT an SLine. The curious thing to my surprise was that I have a rear
sway bar already. I asked the dealer if Sway bars come on non-Sline
Hello Everyone First of all I have done a search and I did not get a satisfactory answer. I have a new 07 2.0T with MT. The only think I dont like is the suspension
. It is a little too soft for me. After reading the forums quite a bit I have decided on going with thr Koni FSDs. I also would like to lower the car just a bit. I have read some good things about the euro s-lines but I have a feeling they
It looks as if an S Line adds about 5k at the typical dealer. Is there much difference besides badges and cosmetics Thanks. j i m Salisbury MD
I dont recall that much of a difference in price. It was more like 2K to 2.5K. You get the sport suspension with lowering springs some S-Line badges S-Line sills a much better looking rear end and front end IMHO sport seats with leather aluminum trim aluminum trim around air ducts and the sport wheels. I think about sums it up.
There is a short new blurb dated August 18 on the M-B Worldwide website about the new C-class sport coupe (formerly known as the C-class compact or hatchback). It will be powered only by 4-cylinders including the 230 Kompressor (197HP) 200 Kompressor (163HP) 180 (129HP) and 220CDI (143HP) engines.
