i bought some h&r sport springs for the a4 1.8t,but i need advice...im beginning to think theyre not goin to be much lower and that there will be serious rake as these springs are not strictly listed for avants ,the cars already got sport setup,so im thinking go with one of three things... 1:go ahead and sell the h&r sports (in the classifieds already [;)])and buy h&r race and run them on stock sport shocks. 2:keep the sports,run them on adjustable bilstein sports up front and stock sports rear or 3:forget the savings/funds for ko4ft setup and go coils.... these 3 choices are in order of preference to me but i would appreciate some opinions..how open will i be to sump damage with the race spring setup..

Do it right the first time and get coil overs. StaSiS SS would be and was my choice for Illinois roads. I raised mine each Fall and lowered them each Spring.

Sport springs will be fine. Race is too low for Chicago roads.
