1985 Audi 5000 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1985 Audi 5000 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Audi 5000, 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 5000 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1985 Audi 5000 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, 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 what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your 5000 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.

Audi 5000 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Audi 5000 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Audi 5000’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 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Audi 5000 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1985 5000 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 5000 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Audi 5000 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
