Can anyone recommend suspension kit ???

Hi Everyone,

Can anbody recommend a suspension kit to fit onto my 156 V6 Lusso?

I am definately in need of new shock absorbers, and was thinking about buying some lowered springs as well.

I have seen a KONI kit on Ebay...

KONI SUSPENSION KIT ALFA ROMEO 156 + JTD V6 SPRINGS on eBay, also Suspension Components, Performance Tuning Parts, Car Tuning Styling, Cars, Parts Vehicles (end time 25-Mar-08 21:01:05 GMT)

..but to be honest this is a little bit out of my budget at the moment, and to be honest I don't think I would really benefit from the adjustable damping rate either! All I am after is a good suspension kit, without no fancy tweeks. I have owned two cars before that have been lowered by previous owners (both Alfa 155's), and the back tyres used to constantly scrape the wheel arches - which is absolutely useless to me, especially when carrying passengers!

Is there anybody that can recommend a good kit from experience?

Any help appreciated!

Alfa Romeo 156 3.0 V6 24v Lusso (2000)

Re: Can anyone recommend suspension kit ???

i recommend KONI Sport dampers + Eibach Pro Kit springs. worked well on my 2L 156, and also fitted the equivalent to my V6 GT.

alternatives are KONI FSD dampers, or Bilstein B6. springs can be H&R and Novitec.

Eibach Pro System (ie: Eibach springs + dampers) is another very good option - performance and cost wise. perhaps that will suit your needs if available for the V6 156.

do a 'search'. key words can be: KONI, Eibach, H&R, Novitec, Bilstein

I'm very happy with the Eibach Pro system kit (on my 147 1.6TS).

top_man_eldo, if you do go for that kit, buy it quickly on ebay, at that price. i have just been quoted for one from them(larkspeed) via email, bought it from their ebay shop, paid over the phone, and got mine at that price because they havent yet updated their prices. apparently all of them have gone up in price by quite a bit now.
