Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6

Is It Time For 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your GTV-6 jolts, 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 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6, bring it 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your GTV-6 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your GTV-6’s shocks and struts 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 good idea to have your 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1986 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Alfa Romeo GTV-6? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your GTV-6 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Alfa Romeo service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
