When To Get 2008 Audi A5 Quattro Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2008 Audi A5 Quattro, 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 A5 Quattro bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2008 Audi A5 Quattro in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 your A5 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 A5 Quattro Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Audi A5 Quattro 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 2008 Audi A5 Quattro’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Audi A5 Quattro shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Audi A5 Quattro suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2008 Audi A5 Quattro Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A5 Quattro's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires.

  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Audi A5 Quattro? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact.

  • Does my Audi A5 Quattro power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
