2013 RS5 Audi Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2013 Audi RS5 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2013 Audi RS5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your RS5 bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2013 Audi RS5, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your RS5 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Audi RS5 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Audi RS5

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Audi RS5 suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Audi up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your RS5’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Audi RS5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 Audi RS5 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
