Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Audi 90

When To Get 1988 Audi 90 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1988 Audi 90, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 90 feels bouncy, 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 1988 Audi 90, bring it 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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Audi 90 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Audi 90 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1988 Audi 90’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 90’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Audi 90 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Audi 90 suspension 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.

1988 90 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi 90? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi 90 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 90 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Audi's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
