1983 GTV-6 Alfa Romeo Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your GTV-6 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 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your GTV-6 suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 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.

Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Alfa Romeo GTV-6 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your GTV-6’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Alfa Romeo's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Alfa Romeo GTV-6? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Alfa Romeo intended.
  • When does Alfa Romeo GTV-6 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Alfa Romeo service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
