Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1996 Audi A6

When should you have your 1996 Audi A6 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1996 Audi A6 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1996 Audi A6, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your A6 bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 Audi A6 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Audi A6’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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Audi A6’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1996 Audi A6’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Audi A6 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Audi A6 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 A6 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A6's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Audi A6? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Audi A6 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your A6’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Audi's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
