After much anticipation, we are pleased to release our lowering spring kit for the 2017+ Audi RS3 (8V) sedan. With the success of the 8V S3 spring, they’ve been eager to apply their experience to the RS3 platform. Similar to the other spring offerings, they went into the development process with a goal of maintaining OE ride quality and characteristics, while offering an aesthetically pleasing and functional drop. After testing multiple revisions on the in-house RS3, they feel that they have met and exceeded this goal.
They specifically opted for a linear spring design (similar to OEM), as in their experience, this pairs very well with the stock dampers. For those who’ve had a poor experience in the past with lowering springs feeling bouncy, crashy and all around poor in terms of ride, they feel that the lowering springs will be a welcome improvement.
Each spring set is 100% made in the USA exclusively for EMD Auto. The springs are made of high tensile chrome silicon and each unit is shot peened, pre-set and 100% tested to ensure all the critical dimensions and rate/loads are within tolerance. The springs are then zinc primered for corrosion resistance and finished in a gloss black powder coat for a factory appearance.
