Is It Time For 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Spider feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 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 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Alfa Romeo up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Spider’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Alfa Romeo Spider shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1990 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 help you notice when you need new 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. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Alfa Romeo intended.
  • Does my Alfa Romeo Spider power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Alfa Romeo's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
