About Suspension Spheress
Audi suspension spheres as the name suggests are hollow metal spherical containers used in a hydraulic suspension system. They work by using pressurised nitrogen gas and hydraulic fluid or LHM (A mineral oil) which is separated by a damper valve inside. Nitrogen gas is used because it will not cause corrosion to the sphere. The hydraulic fluid/mineral oil section is connected to the car’s hydraulic system which pressurises the fluid. When driving the nitrogen gas creates pressure on the hydraulic fluid/oil below and is compressed during the movement of the vehicle.
The suspension spheres operate in a similar way to the conventional spring suspension system and are situated in the same location.
Signs that a suspension sphere needs replacing can include vibration through the steering wheel, excessive bounce or that the suspension feels solid or making clunking noises. These issues are usually caused by a loss of nitrogen gas through use. More modern Audi suspension spheres have addressed this issue by including multiple membranes to their spheres to help limit gas losses. In some cases it’s possible to correct the gas issue temporarily by using a portable gas suspension pump such as the Audi Hydragas suspension pump.
- Volkswagen owns the Audi brand, after buying it from Daimler-Benz way back in the 1960s.
- Audi was founded after the German engineer August Horch fell out with the co-founder of his first manufacturing company. He called the new company August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
- Not happy with just making one of the first automated cars, Audi even built and raced one in the Pikes Peak Hill race, setting records for speed even without a driver.
- 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 Audi R8 is made very unusually, and only 20 are rolled out of their factory on any given day. That’s because it's considered an honour to work on this model, and only the top 120 Audi employees are qualified enough.
