Is It Time For 2006 Audi A3 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2006 Audi A3, 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 A3 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2006 Audi A3 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your A3 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.

Audi A3 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2006 Audi A3’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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2006 Audi A3’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Audi A3 shocks and struts.
