1988 5000 Quattro Audi Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1988 Audi 5000 Quattro Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1988 Audi 5000 Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 5000 Quattro bounces, sways 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 1988 Audi 5000 Quattro 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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, 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 all of your options and the potential cost. If your 5000 Quattro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi 5000 Quattro

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Audi 5000 Quattro suspension system. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 Audi 5000 Quattro’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth 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 inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1988 5000 Quattro Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi 5000 Quattro? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 does Audi 5000 Quattro 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 5000 Quattro’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
