Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro

Is It Time For 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 4000 Quattro jolts, drifts 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 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 4000 Quattro suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Audi 4000 Quattro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Audi 4000 Quattro shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Audi's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 4000 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Audi 4000 Quattro power steering fluid 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’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
