Is It Time For 1996 Audi A6 Quattro Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1996 Audi A6 Quattro, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your A6 Quattro feels bouncy, 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 1996 Audi A6 Quattro, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your A6 Quattro suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Audi A6 Quattro 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 A6 Quattro Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Audi A6 Quattro suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Audi A6 Quattro shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A6 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1996 Audi A6 Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
