Does Your 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 4C jolts, sways 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 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 4C 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 4C steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Alfa Romeo 4C

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C’s suspension. 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 Alfa Romeo up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Alfa Romeo 4C shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 4C’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Alfa Romeo's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Alfa Romeo 4C? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Alfa Romeo intended.
  • When should I have my Alfa Romeo 4C power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 4C’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Alfa Romeo's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo 4C bouncing so much? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your 4C goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • Why does my 4C tilt forward when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your 4C combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Alfa Romeo 4C need replacing? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your 4C feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your 4C travels over minor bumps.
