1998 Audi A6 Quattro Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1998 Audi A6 Quattro suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 1998 Audi A6 Quattro Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1998 Audi A6 Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your A6 Quattro jolts, pulls 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 1998 Audi A6 Quattro, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 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.

Audi A6 Quattro Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Audi A6 Quattro’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A6 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Audi A6 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Audi A6 Quattro’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi A6 Quattro? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • When does Audi A6 Quattro power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months.
