Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro

When To Get 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1987 Audi 5000 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 5000 Quattro bounces, drifts 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 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 5000 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.

Audi 5000 Quattro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 5000 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Audi 5000 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 5000 Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
