Kender - AntiRoll Bar Links Fixed
Over the last 18 months my 156 has suffered from poor ride, knock from front right and vibration through the front of the car. After new shocks, tyres, alloys, front wishbones (at suggestion of N.Wales dealer), the problem was still there if a little improved.
Anyways after Kender's suggestion and the cars warranty expiring, changed the anti-roll bar links today. After a short test-drive, ride is much improved, knock has gone, and car rolls less. Cost £23 parts, £15 labour, apparently the anti-roll bar links had 2 much play which resulted in strut swaying. Alfa/I spent £1500 in 18 months and did not fix it.
The car was an import and I paid £590 for an ext warranty by cr.card with Alfa UK. I am so fed up with Alfa Uk I have contacted the cr.card company and they have said to write it all down and they will consider a charge back to Alfa UK.
No surprise with the poor service but if u too have a knock from front right it is not the steering/or anti-roll bar it is the links and they are cheap to replace.
Just need to fit the new tyres now, as the roll/crap ride has caused all tyres to wear at different rates (have only lasted 5K).
