Is the steering and suspension system in your Audi A8 Quattro due for service yet?

Does Your 2004 Audi A8 Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 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 a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2004 Audi A8 Quattro, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your A8 Quattro suspension system needs repair, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi A8 Quattro

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2004 Audi A8 Quattro shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, 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 2004 Audi A8 Quattro suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2004 A8 Quattro Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Audi A8 Quattro power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your A8 Quattro is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
