Ok so I installed solowerks Coilovrs tonight. The install went well, but now I have an issue, the rear wheels are tucking in the fender. The only way to adjust up is to remove the lower control arm to get to adjustment. Does this seem right? The tools do not fit into the lower arm without it being swung down and out of the way. Any ideas are
Appreciated!!! Pics in next post
Your installation is correct. It's a royal PITA yes. If you did your install yourself it shouldn't be that big of a deal to drop the CAs and spin them up.
On my A3 the adjustable perch is on top of the spring, not the bottom inside the control arm like in the picture. Not sure if that install is correct.
Found this picture of solowerks, I know it's not an R32, it's on a CC so it might be different for you but just so you could see.
If the kit came with a bolt to put through the rear spring adjuster to secure to the control arm I would leave it where it is. If not I would just install it on the top of the spring to make adjusting them easier in the future. On my FKs there was bolt supplied to secure it to the bottom so thats where I had mine installed.
That widow maker looks like it's ready to pop out.
Yeah, each manufacture specifies the install order, my KW Clubsports have the adjuster on the top.
It's actually pretty fast to drop the rear arm down, just 2 bolts. I'd imagione you're going to have to drop it down a few more times to get your height dialed in, so go get'em
