- Air Suspension Strut
What advantages Does the Air Suspension of your Audi Have?
The Audi A6 C6 is fitted with an air suspension system with level control. The air suspension AAS (Adaptive Air Suspension) is used for this purpose.
The advantage is that even when cornering with high speed or with a heavy load, your Audi A6 always achieves optimal levelling and chassis stability. These are all advantages exclusively for the owner of an Audi A6 with air suspension.
The AAS and CDC shock absorbers (Continuous Damping Control), combined with the air suspension shocks, help the Audi A6 C6 reduce roll, pitch, and vertical motion whilst providing dynamic ride comfort. The damping is controlled by means of solenoid valves, whereby the hydraulic oil flow is optimally controlled in the damper.
The air spring dampers can change the height of your vehicle within certain limits according to its speed. At high speeds, your A6 will be lowered by the automatic function. In contrast, the vehicle can be raised at speeds of up to 80 km/h. This advantage is available in the Audi A6 C6 Allroad Quattro.
The air suspension is very well suited for uneven terrain. The Drive Select adjustable lift mode offers more ground clearance for the car body.
Why and When Does the Air Suspension Strut Have to be Replaced?
Over time, the air suspension spring can start leaking or lose oil, which causes that the shock absorbers lose their effect. A loss of oil is recognizable by the disturbing noises from the shock absorbers and, of course, by a lack of damping.
If the level control is defective, you will also recognize a leaky air spring optically. The vehicle lowers overnight on the front axle or leans forward. The compressor tries to compensate for this leak. It runs for too long and can overheat. As a result, you will have to replace the compressor too.
