When should you have your 1993 Alfa Romeo 164 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1993 Alfa Romeo 164 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1993 Alfa Romeo 164, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 164 bounces, 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 1993 Alfa Romeo 164 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 164 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Alfa Romeo 164’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Alfa Romeo 164 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1993 Alfa Romeo 164’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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Alfa Romeo up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 164’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Alfa Romeo 164 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1993 Alfa Romeo 164’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 164's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.

Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 Alfa Romeo intended.
  • When does Alfa Romeo 164 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
