Suspension Service & Repair for 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6

Is It Time For 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your GTV-6 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your GTV-6 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GTV-6 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.

Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Alfa Romeo GTV-6 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’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.

1984 GTV-6 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my GTV-6's steering and 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 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 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 connect with the road how 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 GTV-6 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Alfa Romeo's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
