1990 Audi 200 Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1990 Audi 200 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Audi 200 Quattro, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 200 Quattro bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 Audi 200 Quattro, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 200 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 200 Quattro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Audi 200 Quattro’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 200 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Audi 200 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 200 Quattro’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 200 Quattro Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi 200 Quattro? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Audi 200 Quattro power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 200 Quattro’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
