1987 Audi 5000 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1987 Audi 5000 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Audi 5000, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 5000 bounces, leans 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, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 5000 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Audi 5000 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 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’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Audi 5000 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Audi 5000 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1987 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
