1997 A4 Audi Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1997 Audi A4 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1997 Audi A4, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your A4 jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 Audi A4, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 your Audi A4’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 A4 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 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, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Audi A4 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Audi A4’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 A4 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 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.
  • Why should my Audi A4 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • Does my Audi A4 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your A4’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
