When To Get 1998 Audi A6 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1998 Audi A6, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your A6 bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 Audi A6, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system 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, axle 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 A6 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Audi A6 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Audi A6 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A6’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Audi A6 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Audi A6 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
