Default Bilstein Sport Shocks and Nuespeed Race Springs

I see that a lot of people are using this set up, I just want to know how the ride is over stock? Is it really a rough ride now? Oh...and where is a good place to buy them? Thanks

Normally any race spring setup is not going to be exactly comfy. I have s4 bils/h&rs and i can tell you the ride is def brutal.

I'm running Bilstein Sport Shocks with Neuspeed SPORT Springs (not Race) and it's really nice, not too harsh at all. IMO there's no reason for a tighter street setup. In combo with new sway bars and Quattro AWD, it carries its speed through the turns exceptionally well.

The ride is rougher, but mine is not harsh by any means. I've heard neuspeed is not quite as stiff compared to others such as h&r.

flyboy, dont you belive me? What do u think u can get when put a suspension what was meant for a car 600pd heavier then yours, then put it on the lowest/stiffest setting. Harsh.

i am riding on h&r race springs and bilstein sport shocks. much stiffer over stock but the car feels more responsive and solid. i think even though there is a change in the stiffness you make up for it in response. it is not a bad ride, nothing i really notice to often.

Guys, how much will the Bilstein SPORT shock/Neuspeed SPORT springs lower a B7 with factory standard suspension?

Not sure, but i know with mine,the exhaust bolts are about 3.5in from the ground. Mine have four perches in the front, so this thing is absoluty slammed. Makes the sports stock 16s look big.
