Some have used Slime tire sealant...about 12oz per corner. It didn't work for me, but there are aftermarket shocks for less than half of the OEM units. That's what I did and they work great.


you drive a $50k car. there aren't many cheap fixes. I have seen people use the suspension from the allroad in an A6 so I would imagine you could do the reverse. You can buy A6 after market kits for around $800 then just pay for installation. Those allroad springs are like $800ea so that will save you a good amount of money, you just won't be able to adjust your ride height anymore.


A ittle late, but the answer to your question is here...I went with the dete kit.
