    Looks great! Those are my favorite wheels that audi makes. Maybe 10mm or 12mm spacers up front, is the only thing I'd add.

    To those running the H&R "Sport Springs" (~1.3/~1.25" lowering), did you notice a big difference in camber position from stock? I'm interested in these but I don't want to end up with an obnoxious amount of rear camber.

    It is an official illuminated advertising panel I got from a former dealership that went insolvent.

    Fresh install so the springs still haven't settled. Will post updates in a couple weeks. Here are the preliminary photos of the vehicle 1 day after install. The pictures don't do it justice. Looks much higher than it really is.

    Hey everyone. So I've got a set of H&R Sport Springs (1.3"F, 1.25"R drop) waiting to be installed on my B8 S5. I've had them for a while, still haven't put them on, but, should I replaced the factory shock absorbers? The set on my car are original, with around 97K miles on them. If I did new shock absorbers, it'd likely be the Bilstein "B8" sport ones. Bilstein makes a kit with those shocks and Eibach lowering springs, though, the drop is a little bit less.

    Will this pair nicely, or should I just stick with original shocks, or OE replacements?

    With that many miles, I'd replace the shocks without question. Especially if you plan on keeping the car. I'd go over all the control arm bushings and make sure they're intact and replace a few other items while you're in there, like the top shock mounts, bump stops, etc...

    Absolutely upgrade your struts. With the mileage on your oem struts, and significant drop of the springs (over 1 inch) you’ll definitely want to.

    When i has my S5 I upgraded to the Bilstein sport struts you mentioned. It pairs well. You’ll notice a firmer ride but the look will be much better. Post pics!

    Glad to hear you liked them! I'll definitely post some. For now I'm on stock 19x8.5 with 15mm/20mm spacers. Looking into either 19x10 or 20x10's also.

    I did all the control arms already, but, I'll probably replace everything else. Maybe get new hardware too. While I'm at it, maybe I'll grab the 034 strut mount kit.

    Yeah, it'd be the right time to do it as it all has to come out anyway in order to swap the springs. When you look up the hardware, just make sure it's S5 specific to your car. There may be different parts for your model/year from what I've listed in other threads.

    I just look up part numbers through Audi's own parts website. https://parts.audiusa.com

    So then let me ask this:

    I was eye-balling a set of H&R Street Performance coil-overs since I started looking at suspension. (~1"-2.5" drop I believe). I think they retail for around $1,250. The Bilstein shock absorbers/struts will run me around $740. My H&R springs were around $250. We'll round up to $1,000. I know I won't exactly get my return selling the springs, even though they're new, but do you guys think it's perhaps worth the price difference to just get the coil-over kit?

    I think I'm just going to go with the ST Suspensions kit for the B8 platform. Seems to be the best cost-effective solution for a proper ride.
