1984 4000 Audi Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1984 Audi 4000 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1984 Audi 4000, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 4000 bounces, leans 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 1984 Audi 4000, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 4000 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

Your 1984 Audi 4000’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. 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 getting your 1984 Audi 4000’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Audi 4000 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 4000’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1984 4000 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Audi 4000 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When does Audi 4000 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. If your 4000’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
