1983 Audi Quattro Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1983 Audi Quattro Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1983 Audi Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Quattro feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1983 Audi Quattro in for steering and suspension services. 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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Quattro 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 Quattro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi Quattro

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Audi Quattro 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Audi Quattro’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Audi Quattro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Audi Quattro’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
