Does Your 2004 Audi A4 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2004 Audi A4 Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your A4 Quattro jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2004 Audi A4 Quattro in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi A4 Quattro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Audi A4 Quattro’s suspension. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A4 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A4 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Audi A4 Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 A4 Quattro Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Audi's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi A4 Quattro? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When does Audi A4 Quattro power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your A4 Quattro is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
