So you have a vehicle that you love to push to the limit at the TRACK, but you also use this vehicle to COMMUTE to work... You want a coil over to enhance your ride experience when you're at the track, but you fear that your daily commute will be a ""ROUGH"" ride. Don't worry, H&R's Coil Overs broke away from traditional twin-tube shock absorbers and engineered a state-of-the-art mono-tube gas shock construction to bring you the best suspension product available for your Audi A6. Using top quality materials, H&R's engineers modified each coil over shock with a progressive rate spring to provide you with exceptional handling and a comfortable drive, all in one incredible design.
STREET PERFORMANCE COIL OVERS - The suspension solution for everyone, from the daily driver to the hardcore tuner--H&R's Street Performance Coil Overs feature a lowering range of 1.0 TO 2.5 INCHES on average, a FULLY THREADED shock body for adjusting vehicle lowering, and INCOMPARABLE handling and ride comfort.
H&R Exclusive Rear Height Adjusters
H&R prides itself on its numerous 'firsts' and innovations that have revolutionized the suspension industry. One of H&R's ingenious creations is its exclusive, patented rear height adjusters. Used for height adjustment in vehicles that have a separate rear spring / shock setup, the H&R exclusive Rear Height Adjusters in effect replace the lower rear spring perch with an easily height adjustable spring seat design. Using a hex key, a simple twist of the wrist is all that is needed to raise or lower the rear of the car. H&R's exclusive Rear Height Adjusters accompany some BMW applications.
A coilover suspension basically gives you a matched lowering spring and shock absorber combination with the added benefit of adjustable ride height and spring rates through a moveable spring perch or perches. Coil overs are to your car's advantage by reducing unsprung mass, increasing suspension travel, and allowing the car to be corner balanced.
