We've packaged these kits using over 20 years of service knowledge and experience. Blausport Audi S4 shocks meet/exceed the quality construction of Audi Genuine. Our kits are packaged to include all the necessary shock mounts, bump stops, dust boots, and shock related hardware to ease installation. You won't have to run to the hardware store when you strip that seized bolt during old shock removal. When replacing all critical components you can be assured of that new Audi S4 feel again! With decades of specialized Audi experience we understand how important the Audi S4 driving experience is. Be assured that Blausport's shock kits make it better. "Feel The Road" with Blausport's Audi S4 shocks!
1) Blausport Audi S4 shock absorber kits make shock installation easier because they include the necessary related components (i.e. mounts, stops, boots) and assembly hardware that is commonly needed for successful S4 shock replacement.
2) Blausport Audi S4 shock absorber valving is designed specifically for each individual vehicle application.
3) BLAUŽ Audi S4 shock absorbers utilize German mono tube and twin tube deign features.
4) Blausport Audi S4 shock absorbers are filled with Nitrogen gas, delivering superior performance. Nitrogen gas lessens aeration of the shock's dampening fluid. This maintains continuous shock dampening performance, reducing shock fade, resulting in less tire wear and longer suspension component life.
5) Unlike other popular name brand shocks, Blausport Audi S4 shock absorbers are filled with a long life, multi viscosity oil containing Mos2 moly lubricant. Mos2 helps resist fluid breakdown and maintains year round shock fluid performance under all weather driving conditions. Mos2 greatly reduces wear on all internal shock components, extending the shock life for years of great shock performance.
6) Advanced internal self-lubricating shock components from Japan result in less shock shaft friction combined with a Fluon banded shock shaft piston, increasing Audi S4 shock life and improving dampening sensitivity.
7) Blausport Audi S4 shocks meet/exceed the quality of original equipment. We're so confident of the superior quality over any other brand that we offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty. They are ISO/TS 16949 certified. This is part of ISO 9001 standards and specific to the automotive industry.
PLEASE NOTE:Blausport Audi S4 shocks are NOT intended or designed to be used on vehicles equipped with AFTERMARKET lowering sport springs (i.e. H&R, Eibach or others). These spring kits tend to lower the vehicle more than the stock FACTORY S4 suspension which make them dimensionally not compatible with Blausport's Audi S4 shocks. We've received many telephone calls from customers who ask, “If my vehicle is lowered just a smidgen more than the stock S4. Will your shocks work?” Our answer is, “No.” Do not purchase our strut shock kit if your vehicle is lowered more than the stock S4 suspension.
Your S4 came with 'Sport' suspension from the FACTORY. Your vehicle has shorter springs that results in a slightly lowered vehicle stance of approximately 1.5” along with shock absorbers that have been valved to yield a slightly firmer ride. Blausport S4 Shocks have been designed and engineered to work as a stock replacement and fit in conjunction with stock FACTORY 'Sport' suspension springs.
Blausport's Audi S4 shock absorber kits are designed to replace worn out shocks on vehicles having a stock FACTORY 'Sport' suspension equipped 'Sport' suspension systems.
You'll appreciate that Blausport Audi S4 shocks have been engineered to provide similar ride characteristics to that of the stock 'Sport' setup. Experience Blausport's firm sporty ride without the harshness that is often associated with some sport suspension upgrades. Blausport Audi S4 shocks supply the perfect amount of firmness to help you "Feel The Road".

Part Number MGR1024 -2000-2002 Audi S4 Models
The Audi S4 shock absorbers are a substantial part of the suspension system. Audi S4 shocks go beyond providing mere comfort. Shocks affect other related suspension components, along with steering, tire wear and responsiveness.
The Audi S4 shock mounts, shock bump stops, shock dust boot / sleeves,spring perch plates, and lower shock nuts/bolts (connects to the lower control arm) make up the front suspension (as shown). In addition, the front suspension is equipped with 8 control arms (each with ball joints), 2 tie rod assemblies (each with inner and outer joints), and 2 sway bar links. That's another 24 moving hemi / ball joints and bushings that make up both sides of the front suspension. An Audi S4 has one of the most unique and complicated front suspension systems on the road today! We often get calls from customers who are still experiencing noise after replacing their shocks and related components. This is because control arm and shock related noises can be very similar. It is a difficult task to diagnose front end problems on these special suspension systems, even for the most experienced mechanics. Only automotive technicians that are familiar with the complexity of your specific Audi front suspension should troubleshoot and repair it. Stay tuned for our troubleshooting write up regarding the complexity of diagnosing Audi S4 front end suspension noises.
2002-2006 Audi S4 models have rear shock mounts, shock bump stops, and shock dust boot / sleeves and strut nuts/bolts that make up the rear suspension.
This spongy feeling and slow bump recovery time is one of the first signs that you're in need of new Audi S4 shocks. Other symptoms include bald patches on your tires, tire cupping, excessive shock oil seepage, vehicle pulling, poor steering response, or sharp knocks, such as when going over railroad tracks.
The importance of servicing your Audi S4 suspension the correct way can not be overstated! In this economy many are trying to save wherever possible. However, think carefully before cutting corners in this department. When replacing Audi S4 shocks in our own Audi S4 Shock Labor Costservice facility, we've seen that other suspension parts (i.e. Audi S4 shock mounts, stops, boots, and hardware) show significant signs of wear or have already begun to deteriorate and are not reusable. Many customers who have replaced only their Audi S4 shocks, have found that they're still experiencing similar suspension problems as well as random front end suspension noises. This may be because other worn shock related components can simulate the same symptoms as bad shocks. Why go through the significant labor to replace the Audi S4 shocks only to realize a failure in one or more of the related items. Consequently needing to redo your suspension job? Many wish they would have spent the extra money up front than face this labor intensive job a second time. Consider the following:
Usually when an Audi S4 shock begins to go bad the seals start to seep oil. This shock oil leaks Audi S4 Shock Bump Stops Sleevesonto the bump stop eating away at the rubber foam material, affecting its density and ability to perform its job properly. If the bump stop isn't replaced, your new shocks have the chance of bottoming out, causing internal shock damage and premature failure. Replacing the stops helps protect new Audi S4 shocks from bottoming out when hitting potholes and rough roads. Leaking shock oil can also get onto the dust boots. Over time this eats away at and weakens the rubber causing it to deteriorate and eventually rip. Ripped dust boots allow road grime and dirt to contaminate the shock causing scarring of the shock shaft and seals, resulting in premature shock failure. Replacing the boots protects new Audi S4 shocks (shock shaft and seal) from dirt and dust, ensuring their long lifespan.
Nearly all S4 models that we've had in our facility for shock replacement needed new shock mounts. Audi S4 Audi S4 Shock Mountsshock mounts are made of a rubber material and with age, collapse and deteriorate. This is especially noticeable in the front of the car since it supports the engine and endures the brunt of road impact. Worn Audi S4 shock mounts often cause a conspicuous clunking noise when going over bumps. Play at the top of the spring perch while the suspension is loaded (not un-sprung) may also be evident.BACK TO TOP
