Does Your 2007 Audi A3 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2007 Audi A3, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your A3 bounces, pulls 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 2007 Audi A3, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Audi A3’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Audi A3 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2007 Audi A3’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2007 Audi A3’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Audi A3 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2007 Audi A3’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.
