About Suspension Leg Struts
The Audi suspension leg strut is a strong metal strut that is positioned behind the wheel with the control arm sitting either side of it. It’s bolted to the chassis at the top and the lower control arm at the bottom. The strut consists of a metal bar with a damper situated in the middle. Over the top of this metal bar sits a coil spring which in combination with the damper acts a shock absorber and cushions the vehicle from the bumps in the roads surface, providing a smoother ride. The Audi suspension leg strut also improves the performance of the coil spring by dampening the effect the springs have when dealing with shocks.
Damage to the Audi suspension leg strut can result in ‘forward plunge.’ This is where the vehicle shunts forward when brakes are applied.
Other issues can include the vehicle rocking from side to side or being unpredictable when handling. It’s also worth noting that the ride smoothness will greatly deteriorate if the Audi suspension leg strut is showing signs of wear. A quick way of checking performance is to use a ‘bounce test.’
- The Olympics Committee tried to sue Audi in 1995, claiming that the four rings logo was too similar to the Olympic rings. Audi easily won.
- In 1971, Audi reached the landmark that all car manufacturers hope to hit sooner rather than later: the production of their millionth car. By 1976, they reached 2 million!
- If you’ve ever looked at an Audi RS and mistaken it for a Porsche, you haven’t gone mad. The car was actually a collaboration with Porsche, and the RS has the distinctive grille and tailgate of the famous sports car.
- The classic Audi ‘four-ring’ logo is instantly recognisable and is meant to symbolise the four companies that make up the main trading arms of Audi.
- The RS3 is lighter than you might think. That's because the five-cylinder engine isn’t made from cast-iron but instead from aluminium. That means it only weighs around 26kg!
