Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Audi R8

2011 Audi R8 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Audi recommend steering and suspension service for 2011 Audi R8s?

Does Your 2011 Audi R8 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2011 Audi R8, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your R8 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 Audi R8 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Audi R8 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 R8 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2011 Audi R8’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your R8’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Audi R8 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Audi R8’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.

2011 R8 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Audi intended.
  • When should I have my Audi R8 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your R8’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
