Not sure when or if your Audi A6’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1999 Audi A6 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1999 Audi A6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your A6 feels bouncy, sways 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 1999 Audi A6, 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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Audi A6 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 1999 Audi A6 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your A6’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A6 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 Audi A6 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1999 A6 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Audi's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • 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’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
