[A4] Strut vs. Cartridge Replacement Options

I would try and get some sport springs if you want a sportier ride if not,
you CAN get struts for the non-sport suspension though so that is a complete
line or junk.
On my a4 I had the sport springs and installed Bilstein Sport dampers.
Much better ride quality and handling over the OEM sport setup IMO.
Then again it was probably because the 90k mile shocks were at the end of
their life.
