Need some advise please. Just bought my first Audi this week. 2007 A4 2.0T Quattro. I have been on Audizine and Audi-sport.net. and leave more confused. I want to lower and improve handling of the car. Limited budget. If I start w/ springs, wheel spacers and a larger tire on stock 17″ 5 spoke splits, what do you recommend for spacer size and tire size? Do tire and spacer size need to match since it’s a Quattro? So I guess I need to know how big of a tire I can fit on stock rims and then fill the gaps via spacers.
I appreciate your opnion and your time. Grant
Sounds like you’re going in the right direction with the mod’s on your A4, congrats on the purchase by the way!
Springs will definitely give you a lower stance, but won’t match up perfectly with the factory shocks/struts. Just be aware that the OEM struts and shocks may need to be replaced earlier if you run lowering springs for a prolonged period of time. Wheel spacers are going to great for giving your car a wider stance, just make sure they are hubcentric. The larger tire is the only thing I would advise against. The sidewall needs to stay the same as what came from the factory. You may be able to run a wider (width measurement) tire, but it may look funny if you go too wide. I think you’ll be surprised at what a difference simply lowering and spacing out the wheels can make…
Make sure to send us pictures of the new set-up!
Thank you for getting back to me. Very much appreciated! If I were to go with a coil-over set up would I eliminate having to replace shocks and struts? Sounds like I might have to spend more money up front that I would eventually have to spend in order to keep the vehicle in tight working order….and probably end up with a better overall suspension and not have to pay for labor twice. Am I on the right track here?

You’re right about that. A coilover set up is going to include springs and struts/shocks which are designed to work correctly together. If you can afford the initial cost of the coilover set-up right away then it really isn’t an option. Go with a good coilover set-up and never look back!
I’ve got a 01 AR 2.7t stage 1 tune, st coil overs on 20″x9s /20″x10.5s and I’m also in Maryland…
