Is It Time For 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C, 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. Maybe your 8C bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 8C suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Alfa Romeo 8C 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.

Alfa Romeo 8C Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Alfa Romeo 8C shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C suspension 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.

Questions About 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Alfa Romeo's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why should my Alfa Romeo 8C get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Alfa Romeo intended.
  • When should I have my Alfa Romeo 8C power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 8C is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Alfa Romeo's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo 8C bouncing excessively? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my 8C front end dip forward when I brake? The forward dip in the front end of your 8C when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • What do worn Alfa Romeo 8C shocks feel like? Worn 8C shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your 8C might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your 8C shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
