When To Get 2009 Audi Q5 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2009 Audi Q5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Q5 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2009 Audi Q5 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Q5 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 parts of your Audi Q5 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Audi Q5 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Audi Q5 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Q5’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Audi Q5 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Audi Q5’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 Q5 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Audi Q5? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • When does Audi Q5 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
