1990 Audi 100 Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1990 Audi 100 Quattro Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1990 Audi 100 Quattro, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 100 Quattro bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1990 Audi 100 Quattro in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 100 Quattro suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Audi 100 Quattro suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi 100 Quattro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1990 Audi 100 Quattro’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 100 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Audi 100 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Audi 100 Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1990 Audi 100 Quattro Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Audi 100 Quattro get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When does Audi 100 Quattro power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months.
