Is It Time For 2001 Audi A6 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2001 Audi A6, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your A6 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2001 Audi A6 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Audi A6 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2001 Audi A6 suspension system. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2001 Audi A6 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A6 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Audi A6’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 A6 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A6's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important 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 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? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your A6’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
