During the first few years you had your 1998 Audi Cabriolet, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Cabriolet bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Audi Cabriolet in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.
The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Cabriolet suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Cabriolet 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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Audi Cabriolet suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cabriolet’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Audi Cabriolet shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cabriolet’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
