Suspension Service & Repair for 2018 Audi Q5

Does Your 2018 Audi Q5 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2018 Audi Q5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Q5 feels bouncy, drifts 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 2018 Audi Q5 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Q5 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Audi Q5 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi Q5 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2018 Audi Q5 suspension system. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Q5’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Audi Q5 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Audi Q5’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.

Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • When does Audi Q5 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Q5’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
