1999 A8 Audi Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1999 Audi A8 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1999 Audi A8, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your A8 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1999 Audi A8, bring it 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Audi A8’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.

Audi A8 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1999 Audi A8’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Audi A8 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Audi A8’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
