Default H&R

I have a4 qauttro 98'. i just got 18' rims, and im looking for springs. ive decided on H&R lowering springs 1.9 in the front 1.5 in the back. It sounds good, and i noticed that the front of my car is higher then the back so it does make sense. I just wanna know if theres nething i need to be aware of before i buy them. The springs are made for my exact car, and im not going to buy shocks till a couple months. Anyone in southern cali know of a place other then dynamic that'll swap springs, i dont wanna pay 500.

DIY. It's not difficult. 3-5 hours depending on tools and skills.

2 inches is a serious drop.
I'd be careful if you're considering upsizing your wheel/tire combo - rubbing will be at risk.
Your control arms will be stressing, too.
What are the spring rates on this package? That's also an important factor.

Not Eibach.
Go with the H&R.
I think you'll get both cosmetic and performance benefit if you go with the less agressive 1.25 and 1.00 setup.

Still... check what the spring rates are before signing away your money; you don't want to go too soft or too hard.

hey what does this mean (Audi A4 Sedan, Quattro B5 2.8L -11/1994 10/00)... the 11 and 10 what does that stand for. Im guessing the years for this part are 1994-2000, right?

Get the H&R w/ 1.25f and 1.00r and get the bilstein shocks w/ grooves. That way you can lower it a bit more.
