From now on we’ve got height adjustable H&R springs Audi Q5 available in our online shop.
These springs offer a variable lowering while retaining the original adaptive or damping-adjustable shocks. The original shock absorbers can be further used without any limitation in function.
H&R springs Audi Q5 enable a lowering of 40-60mm at the front axle and 45-70mm at the rear axle.
Product benefits of height adjustable H&R springs Audi Q5:
- Sporty Appearance
- Lowered center of gravity
- Individual lowering on the original adaptive or electronic adjustable shock absorbers
- The original damping adjustment of the shocks maintains without limitation
- Improved handling characteristics
- With approval
- No alignment of the original electronic system necessary
The success of the Audi Q5 was not foreseeable. Far more than 1.5 million vehicles sold – not easy to imitate. However, many of the coveted midsize SUVs are now in second or third hand and the demand for sporty options is increasing for the now mostly younger owners. And reason enough for the H&R engineers to take up the challenge once again and expand the delivery program with height adjustable H&R springs Audi Q5.
While retaining the standard shocks, the height adjustable springs, also known as \”HVF spring systems\”, allow the vehicle height to be infinitely adjusted to the driver\’s personal taste or requirements after installation. After all, the use of dirt tracks is likely to play a subordinate role. On the track, however, the lowered centre of gravity, a remarkable 40 to 60mm at the front axle and 45 to 70 millimetres at the rear, provides a completely new driving experience, especially in long, fast curves. The body\’s tendency to roll is considerably reduced, yet the necessary driving comfort is maintained. And by the way, this measure underlines the beefy character of the Q5.
The secret to such success? To put it simply, the technology H&R employs to develop cutting-edge suspension systems for competition use is the very same used to develop innovative suspension components for street-driven cars. For the eighth year straight, H&R has been named the supplier for the DTM teams of Mercedes. In addition, H&R maintains extensive involvement in several touring car, GT and Monoposto racing series, not to mention the Formula 1- where each circuit may have its own demanding characteristics. In the harsh environs of competition, H&R is able to test new materials and innovate production technologies that can help racing teams adapt to changing road conditions accurately and efficiently.
Clearly, H&R holds an advantage when it comes to developing competition suspension components, and it is this same flexibility and attention to detail that allows H&R to design and manufacture components like springs, shock absorbers and height-adjustable coil-overs for high-performance street use. Indeed, one of the greatest accomplishments an automotive component manufacturer can attain is to become an Original Equipment (OE) supplier for the automotive industry—and H&R has reached the highest echelon in the industry by supplying precision suspension components to some of the world’s greatest automobile manufacturers. For example, Porsche equips its ultra high-performance Carrera GT as well as its 996 & 997 GT II and GT III with H&R components, while Volkswagen uses them on the Golf R32, the fastest Golf ever. And recently, Mercedes Benz chose H&R suspension components for its CLK supercar, the CLK DTM AMG. Directly derived from Mercedes’ DTM race car, this special model is limited to a production run of 100 units, and with 580-bhp, is one of the fastest production street cars in the world.
All of H&R’s products are 100% made in Germany, and meet ISO 9001 Quality Assurance Standards as well as the rigid safety standards of the German TUV. In addition to the finest-quality materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, H&R prides itself in its ability to remain flexible in product development and production. Whether in motorsport competition or OE manufacturing, flexibility is key to fulfilling the many requirements of the industry today.
Simply put, H&R is more than just a suspension manufacturer — it is a company whose core philosophies are innovation, quality and performance.
