1986 4000 Audi Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1986 Audi 4000 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1986 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. Perhaps your 4000 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Audi 4000 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Audi 4000 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Audi 4000 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Audi 4000’s shocks and struts replaced 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 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 4000’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1986 Audi 4000 Steering & Suspension

  • 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 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi 4000? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 4000 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
