A8 Sport vs S8 front struts & Springs (pre-facelift)

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone know whether the front struts & springs (OEM) are the same on the A8 sport and the S8 ?

I need a new N/S/F spring, and have the option to purchase a pair of struts & springs off an S8. If I get the pair, will I need to replace both sides, or can I get away with replacing just N/S ?

I've searched the forum, and google, but cannot find any specs regarding the standard springs / suspension for the Sport.

thanks,

If memory serves me correctly, the S8 was slightly lower than the A8 Sport, so there is probably some difference.

The range of springs and shocks for the Audi A/S is mind boggling and you will find different spring rates on the S8 dependant on whether they had bi-xenon (with self leveling), single xenon with a tow hook from new or no tow, no xenon. You won't go far wrong fitting S8 front struts and springs from a PF S8 to an PF A8 sport. I belive the worst that can happen is the front may be a few mm lower.
