When To Get 2004 Audi A6 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2004 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. Perhaps your A6 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2004 Audi A6 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, 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 all of your options and the potential cost. If your A6 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi A6 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2004 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2004 Audi A6 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Audi A6 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2004 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.

2004 A6 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my A6's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi A6 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Audi's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
