During the first few years you had your 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Spider jolts, drifts 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 Spider, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Alfa Romeo Spider’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Alfa Romeo Spider shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Spider’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
