Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6

Does Your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your GTV-6 bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil 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 all of your options and the potential cost. 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 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 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1985 GTV-6 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Alfa Romeo GTV-6? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Alfa Romeo GTV-6 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your GTV-6’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Alfa Romeo's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
