Suspension Service & Repair for 2013 Audi A5

Is It Time For 2013 Audi A5 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2013 Audi A5, 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 A5 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 Audi A5 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your A5 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Audi A5 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2013 Audi A5’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A5’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 Audi A5 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2013 A5 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 should my Audi A5 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 A5 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. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
