2009 Audi R8 Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Audi R8’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2009 Audi R8 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2009 Audi R8, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your R8 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2009 Audi R8 in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Audi R8 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Audi R8 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2009 Audi R8’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2009 Audi R8’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Audi R8 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Audi R8 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.

2009 R8 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my R8's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Audi R8? 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 the tires connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • Does my Audi R8 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your R8’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Audi's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
