    Default WTB: OEM SQ5 (8R) Suspension

    WTB: SQ5 (8R) OEM suspension with springs and dampers.

    Maybe someone upgraded to coilovers and have some lying around.

    Thanks.

    Would like to try and find SQ5 suspension as it's a little bit lower than the Q5, but thanks for the offer Muckman.

    Keep in mind, the SQ5 springs in australia are for TDI only. If your lowering something like a Q5 TFSI V6, they are not suitable. The TDI spring loads and shocks are completely different being they are completely different weights.
    Even H&R specifically specify this. The TDI springs are not the same as the petrol models.

    It's for a 2016 2.0T 8R Q5 (non-SLine), but all good, I have decided to go a different route so this is no longer needed. Cheers.
