1986 Alfa Romeo Spider Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider Suspension Service

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.

Alfa Romeo Spider Shock & Strut Replacement Services

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. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1986 Spider Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Alfa Romeo's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Spider? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 should I have my Alfa Romeo Spider power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Spider’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Alfa Romeo's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
