I had my Eibach springs and H&R 15/20mm spacers installed today. My wife thinks it looks like a lowrider pimp-mobile. I don't think she meant that as a compliment...What do you think?

Looks great and clean.... you guys need to stop posting pictures of stock s5/a5 on spacer springs... I don't want to mod this car... but it looks so clean sexy.... ahhhhhhhhh maybe the wife will approve next year.... but damn even doing one mod will open a can of worms... ending in me following in spinners footsteps....

Nice! Just ordered 15 front 20 back MTM spacers for my 2010 S5 cab.......is their a noticable difference in the stance of the car with the spacers on? Do you have any before and after pics (i see the after pics above)

That is one sweet ride!!! Kinda wished I would have got the cab but here in sunny Seattle probably wouldn't use it all that much. Plus it cost about another 5K:laughinatabove:

By the way how do the Eibachs ride? Are they better than the H&R? Looking to lower my S5 and A4 down a little. Also, did you do your own install?

I absolutely love it! especially considering it's my exact same car (which already has 15/20 spacers on it). . .so i can really get a sense for what it would look like. how much drop is that with the eibachs?

They advertise a 1" drop in the front and a .8" drop in the back. To me, it looks like the back dropped a little more. I would imagine that these springs were designed for the coupe where the front/rear weight distribution is a little different.

^ now it all makes sense. on day one, your drop with the eibach's looks much lower than my coupe does, even though my springs have settled already. i still have a 2 finger gap to the fender, yours look to have no gap at all. there's at least a 300+ lb difference in weight between the coupe and cab, so no wonder. get ready, you are going to get more of a drop and hear more of the business from your wife. i recall a pal with a cabrio was looking for springs and could not find any for the cab. those springs are calibrated for the weight of the coupe.

Hoes luv the Pimp Cab...your wife is just jealous of all the attention you'll be getting when she's not riding shotgun!lol!
Yeah, its why I think cabs would have to go coilover till they make cab-specific springs, not lookin' to drag my rear and shoot sparks from scraping my AWE tips!

Will do the spacer set up tho!!!

Looks Great! Was wondering how the alignment came out? I have the H&R springs and my front tires angle in slightly, I'm unable to adjust the camber.. I was considering the Stern control arms (if they fit) to fix the problem.. Any info thx..
