1988 80 Quattro Audi Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1988 Audi 80 Quattro Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1988 Audi 80 Quattro, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 80 Quattro jolts, drifts 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 1988 Audi 80 Quattro in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Audi 80 Quattro suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi 80 Quattro

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Audi 80 Quattro suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 Audi 80 Quattro’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi 80 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Audi 80 Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
