The Suspension Technology

Suspension components from AC Schnitzer improve driving comfort, dynamics and safety. Essential requirements for this is that the wheels always have contact with the ground, and that road-holding, cornering stability, braking and steering safety are
guaranteed.

Manfred Wollgarten personally approves the extremely high product quality of all AC Schnitzer suspension components and certifies the extensive test process for every original product.Suspension

The sports suspensions for the 4 series Gran Coupé

Original AC Schnitzer sports suspension

In the case of driving dynamics we even move a further step forward with the original AC Schnitzer sports suspensions for the BMW 4 series Gran Coupé (F36). The AC Schnitzer sports suspension meets these requirements through its combination of optimum lowering in conjunction with adapted residual spring travel, with simultaneous adaptation of spring rates and damper settings in compression and rebound. Thereby the de-compression is called rebound rate while the shock strut compression – is the compression rate. These different rates are used to increase the driving comfort, but mainly to secure your safety.
