When you first bought your 1997 Audi A8 Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your A8 Quattro bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1997 Audi A8 Quattro in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Audi A8 Quattro’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Audi A8 Quattro’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Audi A8 Quattro shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Audi A8 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your A8 Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
