The rod that connects from the suspension to the height sensor... in order to correct a lowered car, would you want the rod to be shorter or longer?

Re: Rear Ride Height Sensors (legbend)

Ideally, you want the sensor in the center of it's travel. (angular rotation). I would adjust the rod length however was needed to achieve this.

They still have issues though, chronic suspension problems with the <A HREF="http://www.audiusa.com/audi/us/en2/tools/glossary/chassis_body/Dynamic_Ride_Control__DRC_.html" TARGET="_blank">DRC</A> and <A HREF="http://web.mac.com/braddy/iWeb/Site/RS4%20valves.html" TARGET="_blank">valve deposits</A>. They also apparently have similar systems connecting the headlights and suspension height.

I know have seen you on some Audi site <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> The DRC can be replaced with Ohlins and the intake cleaned

Re: (Chilled Man)

He looks like he just drank Aardvark urine. As for the B7 RS4 it is very badass. I am currently working on a project with one actually for money and it is so bad ass

I love the fenders flared like that. wish the R had more of a bulge, it would give it just that much more.

The RS4 and the S5 are completely different.<p>The RS4 is very raw, whereas the S5 is a bit more quiet.<p>I personally prefer the RS4's feel, but the S5's looks win every time. Now maybe the RS5 will be the ticket...

Thanks for the diagram, but it doesn't show the rod, which is frustrating. Where does the rod connect to from the sensor?
