1985 Audi 4000 Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 4000 Quattro jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your 4000 Quattro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi 4000 Quattro

Your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 4000 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 4000 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 4000 Quattro’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 4000 Quattro Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi 4000 Quattro? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Audi 4000 Quattro power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 4000 Quattro is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Audi's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
