Tools for Changing Springs and Shock Absorbers
Additional tool set for Audi A6
(for use with adjusting fixture KL-0255) (German Utility Model)
Suitable for Audi A6 (04/04 onwards) front axle.
The additional tool set, when used with the clamping and adjusting fixture KL-0255, makes clean, quick adjustment of the spring plate possible in relation to the retaining lug of the shock absorber strut. With the adjusting gauge, the precise amount of offset between the lower shock absorber strut mounting and the upper spring plate can be adjusted correctly (see picture).
Note for VW and Audi vehicles:
The front spring/shock absorber struts on VW-Audi vehicles must be pre-adjusted on the workbench, so that the upper mounting point (the spring plate) and the lower shock absorber strut mounting (fork/shock absorber lug) are correctly aligned with one another.
Unless this work is undertaken first, the shock absorber strut cannot be installed, because the fastening points between the shock absorber strut and the body/axle beam will not be aligned.
If the shock absorber strut mounting is forced into the correct position, the O-rings for level control will be damaged and the shock absorber strut will be distorted, which could lead to drumming noise and cause the vehicle to handle incorrectly.
