1988 Audi 90 Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1988 Audi 90 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1988 Audi 90 Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 90 Quattro bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Audi 90 Quattro, 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 your 90 Quattro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi 90 Quattro

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Audi 90 Quattro suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 90 Quattro’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 90 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 90 Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 90 Quattro Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 90 Quattro's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Audi 90 Quattro 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Audi 90 Quattro power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 90 Quattro is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
