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.
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.
