Not sure when or if your Audi A8 Quattro’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 1999 Audi A8 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1999 Audi A8 Quattro, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your A8 Quattro bounces, sways 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 1999 Audi A8 Quattro in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 A8 Quattro 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 A8 Quattro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1999 Audi A8 Quattro’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1999 Audi A8 Quattro shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Audi A8 Quattro shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 Audi A8 Quattro suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1999 A8 Quattro Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi A8 Quattro? 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 connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • Does my Audi A8 Quattro power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your A8 Quattro’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
