1997 Audi A6 Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1997 Audi A6 Quattro Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1997 Audi A6 Quattro, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your A6 Quattro feels bouncy, drifts 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 1997 Audi A6 Quattro, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection 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 parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your A6 Quattro suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Audi A6 Quattro’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi A6 Quattro

Your 1997 Audi A6 Quattro’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. 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 1997 Audi A6 Quattro’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Audi A6 Quattro shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Audi A6 Quattro suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 A6 Quattro Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Audi A6 Quattro? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi A6 Quattro power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your A6 Quattro is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
