Product Description


The AUDI A6 C5 4B Allroad Quattro is the off-road variant of the Avant, which is fitted with air suspension. Unlike the normal Quattro, the Allroad has a higher ground clearance and is thus particularly suited for off-road tracks. For this model, we offer you the Aerosus front air-suspension strut. It can be installed on all A6 C5 models built between 1999 and 2005. You'll find this component in the area of the front wheel arch. This air suspension strut replaces the original Audi component and you can also fit it yourself with a few simple steps. The air spring damper module for this air suspension fits on both the right and left side of the vehicle. The delivery includes the strut top mount, an air strut, an O-ring, bolts and a shock absorber.

What Distinguishes the Front Air Suspension Strut?

The Aerosus air struts are precisely aligned with the suspension of your Audi. They provide level control in the air suspension and offer a high level of ride comfort and optimal vehicle stability. This spare part is made of high-quality materials and is regularly subjected to an expert inspection in Germany.
Our car parts are available of OEM quality and can normally be exchanged without special tools. Of course, you can also hire a specialist workshop for the installation. All the required auto parts are included in the delivery.
With this air strut for your Audi A6 C5, you can adjust the level control in four modes. This gives your vehicle sufficient ground clearance for demanding routes. On highways, on the other hand, the vehicle lowers and reduces aerodynamic drag. Overall, the air suspension covers a height difference of 20.8 cm.

When Must the Air Strut Be Changed?

The original Audi air suspension struts must be changed after a certain period due to wear, as the air spring may leak over time. The vehicle then lowers overnight on the front axle and stays crooked. Likewise, the compressor tries to compensate for such a leak with continuous activity. The compressor runs for too long and can overheat. If it fails, then additional costs may arise. In this case, you'll also receive the message "Below Control Limit" on your vehicle display. If the level control is faulty and your Audi lowers unilaterally at the front, then you must immediately repair the air strut.

Installing and Mounting the Air Strut for the Audi A6 C5

Our air struts ensure ride comfort on all roads and routes. This Audi Allroad version was fitted with such air suspension for the first time in 1999. The corresponding original components can also be replaced by experienced DIY enthusiasts.
If the strut has started leaking and you would like to remove it yourself and install our Aerosus air suspension strut, then you should also look on the other side of the vehicle. The air struts usually wear off evenly on both sides. Before you solve the problem and fit this spare part, we recommend that you order the struts in pairs. You can purchase these spare parts online with just a few mouse clicks and you'll also receive a 10% discount on a pair purchase.
Here you'll find the appropriate air suspension strut for both the front and rear axle for your Audi A6 C5. In addition to the 30-day money-back guarantee, you also benefit from a two-year limited warranty on all our products.
