Produced in the H&R engineering and manufacturing facility in Germany meeting
ISO 9001 quality control certifications, you'll know that the H&R sport springs
will give your Audi A3/S3 a more aggressive appearance, better
performance handling, and with all that, quality and durability.
Each set of springs provide an affordable opportunity to lower your Audi
for that aggressive appearance you've been looking for. Depending on the
make and model of your vehicle, H&R's Sport Springs will moderately lower your
vehicle, filling in your wheel gap without compromising your ride comfort and
safety. As the driver, you will have more control over your car with H&R's
sport springs than your ordinary stock springs, while maintaining a comfortable
feel of a luxury vehicle! These springs are great for daily driving and/or
occasional track use.
About Lowering Springs
Aftermarket springs are commonly used to lower the ride height and to reduce body roll. This is also often done when upgrading to a larger wheel and tire package. Generally speaking, the stiffer the spring rates (the amount of resistance a spring is set for against compression), the softer the sway bar setting can be set in order to achieve a similarly flat cornering response.
When trying to decide which lowering springs are right for you, your goal should not be to drop down the car as far as possible. In many cases, overly "slammed" cars may actually be illegal for road use and terrible performers. The ideal range of adjustment should be 0.5 to 2 inches using traditional lowering springs. Any lower, the height of the perch should be adjusted by using a ride-height adjustable coilover suspension.
