Not sure when or if your Audi A4’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 1996 Audi A4 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1996 Audi A4, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your A4 feels bouncy, 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 1996 Audi A4, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your A4 suspension system needs repair, 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 A4 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 A4 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Audi A4 suspension system. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A4’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A4 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Audi A4 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 1996 Audi A4 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Audi A4? 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 connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi A4 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your A4’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
