The after market ones here look like there’s no rear suspension trave and the car has a problem. In my opinion the factory setup is much better. Just looks right.I went from aftermarket rear springs (that came with the car when I bought it) to the factory rear spring setup:
Perhaps taking yours back to the factory setup as well might help with your ride height situation. Good luck.
Precisely my thoughts. I see so many A2s where the lower PUR spring seat is either missing entirely or has been pulverised to the point of uselessness.Is the lower spring seat still intact?
Thank you all regarding replies about rear ride height. The lower spring seats were indeed both perished. Have replaced both rear springs, upper and lower spring seats, both shock absorbers and top mounts.Precisely my thoughts. I see so many A2s where the lower PUR spring seat is either missing entirely or has been pulverised to the point of uselessness.
The rear spring should not be touching any metal at either end.
