Fix rear sag?

Been riding on H&R SS springs for far too many miles on stock struts. Finally upgrading to Koni Yellows. I recall there being an Audi TT part for the rear that fixes the sag that happens with a spring swap but can't track it down. I think it's the part below, but can someone confirm?

If thatís what you are looking for at the link I have a set Iíd gladly sell for $20 shipped. Bought them a few months back and then ended up never installing due to DG springs being fairly level.

Let me know if you want them. Glad to send part numbers and such.

Yes, those are what you're looking for. Exact same part I was advised to buy when putting my suspension together (VWR springs/ Koni Yellows).

I wish I could find some DG Springs myself! 2DR DSG are impossible to find. I can find stock struts basically free....

KW/ST makes universal 30mm spacers you can add in there, I don't think these OE parts are tall enough to address the sag.

I wouldn't. Many who have done this said they wished the stock shocks as well

I wouldn't waste your time

They're at least 1/2 way thru their life and lowering springs + stock dampers don't pan out very well anyways (ride quality wise)

Do it once & do it right, pair them with better (aftermarket) dampers
