    hello friends!

    im thinking of upgrading my standard suspension, but dont want to pay the earth.

    would the eibach pro kit on the standard shocks be a good idea?

    for ride and handling?

    iv heard how this could ruin the handling and make it nervous on the road (wheel hop, bottoming out etc)

    is this true?

    thanks in advance!

    p.s its an audi a3 8L 1.9 tdi 130 sport

    Hi,
    Have you considered Koni FSD's, I have had these fitted on my Passat with standard springs and found the transformation amazing. It has firmed up the ride a little but not too much but because of the selective dampening the handling has been greatly improved.
    Hope this helps.

    FSD's have mixed reviews with inconsistent quality issues .

    If your old dampers have done many miles renew them with oe Bilstein B4 with the Eibach Pro Kit.

    I have NEVER had any bad experience switching to lowering springs. Actually i find it quiet comfortable, because it feels like you have a batter control of the car, and still keeping it a nice ride experince. If you choose Eibach, well then you're in good hands :-)
    We're selling them :-)
