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

When To Get 1996 Audi Cabriolet Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1996 Audi Cabriolet, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cabriolet 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 1996 Audi Cabriolet, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Audi Cabriolet’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 Cabriolet Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1996 Audi Cabriolet’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1996 Audi Cabriolet shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi Cabriolet shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1996 Audi Cabriolet’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 Cabriolet Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cabriolet's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 Cabriolet? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When does Audi Cabriolet power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cabriolet is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
