When To Get 2004 Audi A6 Quattro Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2004 Audi A6 Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your A6 Quattro feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Audi A6 Quattro in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub 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 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 2004 Audi A6 Quattro suspension system. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Audi A6 Quattro’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Audi A6 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Audi A6 Quattro’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2004 A6 Quattro Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A6 Quattro's steering and 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 should my Audi A6 Quattro get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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.
  • Does my Audi A6 Quattro power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your A6 Quattro’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
