Self Study Program 324 – Audi A6 2005 – Running Gear

VAG SSP 324. The basic version of the Audi A6 2005 is equipped with a steel spring chassis. There are three different types of running gear: Normal running gear: Designation: 1BA

Sports-style running gear: Designation: 1BE, vehicle trim is positioned 20 mm lower than on the normal running gear

Rough-terrain running gear: Designation: 1BR, vehicle trim is positioned 13 mm higher than on the normal running gear

The well-known four-link front axle is also used in the new Audi A6’05 (see SSP 161). Given the geometric and kinematic changes compared to the predecessor vehicle, all axle components except for the top-level axle control arms and the wheel hubs (adopted from the Audi A8) are new parts.

In addition to improved spring and shock absorber settings, spring travel has been increased by 30 mm. This results in a significant improvement in driving comfort and driving stability. With regard to the passenger compartment, the axle was moved forward by 83 mm. This provides better axle load distribution and has advantages from the point of view of driving dynamics.
