H&R Height Adjustable Spring Sets: The sportiest suspension solution - also for automobiles with adaptive dampers

H&R Height Adjustable Spring Sets: The sportiest suspension solution - also for automobiles with adaptive dampers
Innovation

Innovative components such as the H&R height adjustable springs were already developed by the Sauerland suspension specialists at the end of the 1990s. With a current range of more than 150 applications, the focus is on vehicles which are originally equipped with adaptive suspension or damping force adjustable shocks.

The clou: Thanks to the reasoned adjustment mechanism, the H&R engineers make it possible to continuously lower the vehicle's centre of gravity by approximately 30 to 50 millimetres (contingent upon the vehicle), depending on the desired residual spring travel, even though the standard shock absorbers are retained. This not only ensures a particularly sporty vehicle appearance but also a significant increase in driving dynamics.
The H&R professionals of course carefully match the height adjustable spring systems to the respective original shocks and their individual characteristics. For this reason, neither an adaptation of the control electronics nor the technically questionable discontinuation of these is necessary, which needs to be done when installing conventional coil over suspensions. With the H&R height adjustable springs the active standard suspension remains fully functional.

From a technical point of view, the lowering of the vehicle's centre of gravity in combination with the spring characteristics finely tuned in best H&R manner reduces the roll tendency and specifies the turning behaviour more precisely. Visually, H&R height adjustable springs provide a much more sporty vehicle look with wheels that are positioned harmoniously in the mudguards.

H&R height adjustable springs are available for many vehicles, including approvals, for example:
Audi: A3 / A4 / S4 / A5 / S5 / A6 /A7 / RS4 / RS5 / R8 / Q5 / SQ5
BMW: M2 / M3 / M4 / M5 / X6M / 5 Series (F10+F11) / 6 S

Five-time victory for H&R

Five-time victory for H&R

Five-time victory for H&R
The management of H&R Spezialfedern GmbH & Co.KG in Lennestadt has been pleased five times (!) during the past weeks with awards and successes, which can be understood as the result of an innovative and tradition-conscious company management.
 
On the weekend of October 13th and 14th, H&R was able to celebrate the win of the DTM Championship 2018 as the technical supplier of the HWA Mercedes racing cars. The victory of the 7th DTM championship together with HWA Mercedes is not only the sportive success but also the crowning conclusion of a technology partnership with Mercedes which lasted for more than 20 years before they now left the DTM at the end of this season.
 
The suspension specialists from Lennestadt also took first place in the comparative test of five tuned VW Up! in the November issue of the special interest magazine "AutoBild Sportcars". The testers determined:  "The H&R coil-over suspension works best in the MTB car. A lot of driving fun in spite of the opulent lowering plus considerable residual comfort".
 
"Best Brand" category springs 1st place: H&R special springs!
This was the result of this year's poll of the best brands of the trade magazine "Sport Auto". The readers of the German magazine with the highest circulation for sporty vehicles chose the sport springs from H&R as the winner with a clear lead over the competition. H&R already won the title in 2017.
 
H&R subsidiary H&R Medizintechnik (medical technology) won the prestigious 2018 Industry Award for the second time. The award recognizes the product innovation of the BONEHELIX, developed and patented by H&R, in the "Best of" category. The limited flexibility medullary cavity stabilizer is used for the treatment of shaft fractures and reduces the surgical effort by almost 50 percent. In addition, a significantly faster recovery of the patient can be observed.
 
Last but not least, those responsible at H&R can also be happy about a high reputation for their company as an eligible employer. In the "Focus Money Top Career Opportunities for IT Professionals" survey, H&R Spezialfedern GmbH ranked top in the "Automotive Suppliers" category with a rating of 98.3 percent.
