    UMI is always the way to go. They may cost you a few extra dollars but you get what you pay for. You can't beat UMI.

    I was thinking of going with that so my suspension matches but trying to decide between adjustable and non adjustable. I don't have the gauge for adjusting it and I will most likely be doing it myself

    Sportline spings equals lowered I assume. An adjustable torque arm is your best bet -- you can get an angle gauge for not a whole lot of money. Proper adjustment is critical to preventing driveline bind.

    You definitely want an adjustable torque arm for the reason Jeff mentioned.

    Is there something I can look at to find what angles I would even want? I know there's ways to adjust for more launching bite and better handling but I don't know the adjustments for it

    With an A4, you want the nose of the pinion down about 1-1/2 to 2 degrees. On an M6 car, somewhere from 2 to 3 degrees is recommended.

    I had a local shop tell me that it was cracked. I looked at it today and found a maybe half inch crack between the back 2 bolts. both of the bolts were finger tight... Tightened them up and my popping went away. I'll still replace it but I don't think that makes it such a huge priority right now.

    Not that you'd want another stock one, but if you do, I have one for sale. PM me if interested.
    It's on jackstands.

    I like Spohn. Tranny mounted, less noise.

    The one I bought from summit didn't.. I had to buy it separate. I'm around -3 right now and I will try -2 soon. Traction is great right now
