Suspension Service & Repair for 2017 Audi R8

Is It Time For 2017 Audi R8 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2017 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, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2017 Audi R8 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Audi R8 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Audi R8’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Audi R8 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, 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 2017 Audi R8’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.

2017 R8 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Audi's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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? 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.
  • When does Audi R8 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your R8 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Audi service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
