2008 A4 Audi Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2008 Audi A4

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

Does Your 2008 Audi A4 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2008 Audi A4, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your A4 feels bouncy, sways 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 2008 Audi A4, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi A4 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2008 Audi A4’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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A4’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Audi A4 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your A4’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.

2008 A4 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A4's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When does Audi A4 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
