Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Audi 80

Does Your 1988 Audi 80 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1988 Audi 80, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 80 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Audi 80, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 80 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Audi 80 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi 80 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Audi 80’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 Audi 80’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Audi 80 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Audi 80’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
