Suspension Is your ride slammed to the ground? Did you lift it so high you need a ladder to get in? Step in and let's talk about it.

Default 2000 a4 2.8 30v

so im looking to put Eibach pro kit lowering springs on my stock struts. Will this set up work if i purchase new OEM rear/front struts? if so how long would they last? I only want a lowered stance of about 1.25-1.5

You'd be better off buying new Bilstein Sports. For the price of the new OEM struts you could the Bilsteins and still save money. Also, the Bilstein sports would be better suited to the sport springs.

I was thinking about the STs as well

I'm surprised you can't find any. ECS should have them listed under their suspension category.

Audi B5 A4 Quattro V6 30v > Suspension > Shocks > ES#652 Shocks & Struts Set - Sport - B5A4QBSC

^ That's them btw

thanks! i must have completely missed them when i looked haha. but yeah idk if its worth going for the ST coilovers there only a couple more hundred. I heard with coilovers you give up some of the ride "comfort" and its harder going over bumps but its probably worth giving up the ride for the improved stance
