1997 Audi A4 Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1997 Audi A4 Quattro Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1997 Audi A4 Quattro, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your A4 Quattro bounces, 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 1997 Audi A4 Quattro, bring it 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 absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your A4 Quattro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Audi A4 Quattro Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1997 Audi A4 Quattro’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1997 Audi A4 Quattro’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A4 Quattro shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Audi A4 Quattro suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1997 Audi A4 Quattro Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi A4 Quattro? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi A4 Quattro power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your A4 Quattro’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
