Raise Ride height (ground clearance)?

Asked by Mar 05, 2011 at 07:53 AM about the 2007 Audi A3 3.2 S Line Quattro

Question type: Car Customization

Do you know how to increase the ride height (ground clearance) for a 2007 A3 3.2 with out significantly affecting the performance and safety?  I love the car just the way she was designed, but New England frost heaves and pot holes can bottom  her out. 2cm would make difference.

i think the only way you could lift your car is with airbags or have someone make you custom shock spacers. either way you are going to be compromising your ride quality.

my A4 is way lower than your A3 and I never had problems driving in New England. My old A4 was lowered like 3" and I never had a problem. Learn how to not hit potholes and drive more cautiously.
