Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Audi Quattro

Does Your 1985 Audi Quattro Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Audi Quattro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Quattro jolts, sways 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 1985 Audi Quattro in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Quattro suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Quattro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Audi Quattro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1985 Audi Quattro’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 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 Quattro’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Audi Quattro shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Audi Quattro suspension 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.

Questions About 1985 Audi Quattro Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Audi's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Audi Quattro get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Audi Quattro power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
