I know the B5 S4 suspension will fit on a B5 A4 1.8t, but does anyone actually have pics of what this looks like on their car?

Thanks

Do not use S4 suspension on 1.8T A4s, because you may ended up with a car that sits even higher than stock. Keep in mind, the S4 weights more, especially in the front with the 2.7T V6 and the suspension is set up accordingly.

Not to go against what you've said but one of our tech's, Corey, put B5 S4 susp on his old non-sport A4 1.8T and the car lowered about 1/2". He said that handling was improved.

Our $0.02.

You mean I could have sold my old suspension a lot more earlier and for more money?! I only got $50 for the springs....Where were you when I asked this very same question a month ago??!! :)

That's good to know. I was told that they will not be ideal for the 1.8Ts but okay for the 2.8s, including the B5-A4 forum here and on AW.

So I guess you could say it almost looks like the sport suspension...?

i just put s4 suspension on my b5 a4 2.8 I had non sport suspension and it probably lowered it about a half inch. I sat the car next to my buddys s4 and it sat about a half inch higher than his.

Sorry. I'm always accessible via email or phone. [:)]

S4 susp is better suited for the weight of the 2.8L V6 but they'd be fine for 1.8T.

About 1/2" higher or so.
