1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Suspension Service?

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.

Alfa Romeo Spider Shock & Strut Replacement Services

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

1987 Spider Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Spider's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Alfa Romeo Spider get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Alfa Romeo intended.
  • When does Alfa Romeo Spider power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 ensure proper suspension operation.
