on my S3 For use on road outside competition I have to adjust the springs on the threaded rear shock absorber foot. How to make a good compromise

Load it as you would normally drive + half a tank of fuel.

Adjust the springs until the rear wishbones are nearly horizontal. ("nearly" as it allows for settle and gives you a bit to play with.)

This could mean that the wheel arch / wheel centre measurements are different. It s the way it is!
