Eibach springs for 5ktq...

Ok, so while doing some wheel swapping tonight I made a discovery. One of my parts cars that I've had for over 4 years has adjustable Koni shocks (likely no good since they've been sitting so long) and Eibach springs on all 4 corners and I never even knew it. I've been wanting lowering springs for my 'fast' 5ktq for 6 or 7 years but always either spent the money on power mods or the electric bill or something ;-). Turns out I had already bought them and didn't know it!


Eibach no longer lists any springs for any Audi in that era, so I can't find any info on them. Can anybody out there make sense of the markings/numbers or just know what the story is on them? I remember reading something about certain springs being too low or too stiff.

The dampers on the 'fast' car are Bilstein Sports with maybe 6,000 miles on them for reference of the possible spring/damper combination. Sorta sucks I didn't know about the springs when I changed those dampers last year!
