I purchased my current B8 S5 already lowered on H&R springs. I need to raise the car a bit to make it more manageable over inclines, speed bumps etc.

The problem I have is the previous owner could not confirm which springs they were: OE Sport, Sport, Race etc.

Iím appealing to any B8 owners who may be able to identify by looking at the pics of the current height/gap. The car also has 15mm F and 20mm R spacers.

91649 Rear


91650 Front


91651


91652



Appreciate any feedback guys


Cheers

They look like OEs. Are they rubbing on the back? The front should be wider than the backs. An aggressive stance should be 15F 10R on stock size wheels/offset. That's at least for the RS5

That looks a little too low to be the OE Sport, I would say youíre on Sport Springs.

If you want to raise the height slightly and have more comfort, the Eibach Pro Kit are very nice.

I was thinking the same. Iíll check out the Eibachs you mentioned. On the fence about possibly just doing a set of adjustables.
