2016 Audi A4 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2016 Audi A4 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2016 Audi A4, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your A4 bounces, 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 2016 Audi A4, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your A4 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Audi A4 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2016 Audi A4’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Audi A4 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Audi A4 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 A4 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's 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. 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi A4 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
