When To Get 2001 Audi A8 Quattro Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2001 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 noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2001 Audi A8 Quattro, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your A8 Quattro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 2001 Audi A8 Quattro’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2001 Audi A8 Quattro shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi A8 Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Audi A8 Quattro’s 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.
