[A4] Sport Spring on a Stock B5 quattro?

the stock sport kit uses different spring and struts [struts are red].

the struts are the weak link and wear out. 80k is probably time. i've head
of folks using the stock sport springs with bilstein HD or koni to great
effect - most of stock ride with a little bit more firmness and roll

if i were to do it again i would either go that route or get real coilovers
for a grand. i have h+r sport on grooved bilstein sports and it's fun but
it's pretty busy, harsh, crashy, etc.

and as said - definitely do NOT mix and match stock sport with non sport -
sport springs and non sport shocks will be way underdamped [shock wont'
dampen spring motion well].

Chuck Norris counted to infinity. Twice.
