The 2007-2015 Audi R8 Alpine series is the adjustable suspension system you need to consider if you want to replace your defective magnetic suspension, improve handling performance or simply get an aggressive look by lowering the car to reach the fitment and ride height you were always looking for.
The monotube design configuration, added to the completely threaded body result in a fully adjustable long lasting suspension. As the ride height is set by the overall shock length, the spring preload, comfort level and suspension travel remains the same at any ride height setting compared to other suspension where the ride height is set by the spring seat, resulting in reducing the allowed travel as you lower the ride height.
The AU21-AS is offered in 3 different version depending the ride height range, comfort level and use each customer is looking for.
– OE Replacement version: This version is designed to keep a really close to OEM comfort level while still improving handling performance over stock. This version is not designed to go more than -0.5 inch from stock at minimum ride height setting.

– Regular version: This version is the most used by customer looking to lower their R8. It allow a ride height adjustment from stock to approximately -2.5 inch.
