I'm looking to be putting some 19" Axis Milano rims on my car very soon was hoping for any input on the best way to lower my ride height without sacrificing the smoothness of the ride...I wont be taking this car to the track anytime soon and its my everyday driver so any help would be appreciated. Everyone tells me to invest in coilovers but which ones....or would the sport suspension of say an A4 or RS4 work for me?

Hi,

I'd definitely recommend STaSIS StreetSport coilovers; fantastic ride, handling, reduced brake dive and acceleration squat.

STaSIS StreetSport coilover kit for B6/B7 A4 Quattro/CVT(FWD); 4 KONI sport dampers; single adjustable (rebound), narrow band; suspension disassembly required for rebound adjustment; silver chromate plated threaded steel damper bodies; height adjustable; 4 progressive rate KONI springs (450/440 spring rate); balanced and adjusted on SPA damper dynamometer
$995 + s/h
No sales tax here.

Here's a testimonial from a client on this setup;
"Prior to having this suspension setup, I used to run H&R ultras which were cool if you wanted to slam your car lower than any other suspension. However, the H&R coilovers provided a very stiff ride w/o dampening adjustability. Regardless, the H&Rs went bad and it was time to replace them. After attending a Matrix Tech Day, and numerous conversations with Jeremy, I decided to go with the STaSIS setup. I have had the suspension for a month now, and am VERY HAPPY with it. The following are just a few reasons I am so satisfied with this product:

1.) Ride comfort very close to OEM
2.) Unbelievable handling - I don't take my car to the track, but have heard many people running this suspension setup on the track with great results.
3.) Provides dampening adjustability
4.) Provides ride height adjustability
5.) Great price

Best regards,
Dima"
