When you first bought your 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Spider jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Spider 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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward 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 inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
