    2018 SQ5 H&R Suspension work in the Tri-Stae area

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello all... Not sure where to post this, but I am looking to have some suspension work ( H&R VTF Springs) done on my 2018 SQ5. I'm in the eastern PA area and am looking for any highly recommended performance shops locally. Currently I have been thinking about using Redline Speed Works out of Green Brook, NJ... Any help would be great!

    Red Line is good, ask for Eric. Also those springs are noisy, I have them on my 18 and no fix yet from H&R
    Go sedan yourself!

    Redline Speed Worx does a great job.

    @ KneeDragger- Thanks for the heads up... When you say noisy what do you mean? Do you have the adjustable springs? I was talked into doing just the Sport Springs by the shop.

    Would love to see a photo of your SQ5 with the springs on if possible!

    Thanks!

    Holy shit. Thatís drastic. Looks like the difference between lift and dynamic with airbags.

    Are your tires a smaller diameter than stock? It's looks lifted as opposed to OEM height in the before pic; it does look much better now!

    Tires are stock size on a little wider rim.

    Yeah... Very drastic change for sure. Car is almost exactly at Dynamic mode height of the air suspension, and the ride is a little on the rough side for sure. Low profile tires aren't helping that for sure! I'm happy with the look and handling so far but not sure how this is going to end up being on my OEM shocks. Only time will tell...
