1989 Alfa Romeo Spider Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Spider bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Alfa Romeo Spider

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Alfa Romeo Spider shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Alfa Romeo's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Why should my Alfa Romeo Spider get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Spider’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Alfa Romeo's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
