1997 Cabriolet Audi Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1997 Audi Cabriolet Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1997 Audi Cabriolet, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Cabriolet feels bouncy, 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 1997 Audi Cabriolet in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Cabriolet suspension system needs repair, 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 Cabriolet’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.

Audi Cabriolet Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 Audi Cabriolet suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 getting your 1997 Audi Cabriolet’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Audi Cabriolet shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cabriolet’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 Cabriolet Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi Cabriolet? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi Cabriolet power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cabriolet’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
