156/166 Suspension Fixes

Some information that may be of interest. I've just had the upper front swing arms replaced due to creaky suspension, which has only part fixed the problem. However, when I collected my car the garage advised that they would have to replace more parts and, since there is a known problem with 156/166 suspension, Alfa would "more than cover" 50% of the cost of repairs. Apparently, the amount that Alfa provide depends on the age, mileage and service history of the car.
In my case this amounts to a 20% discount on parts and labour for the upper swing arms, with the remaining parts being replaced free of charge. These include bushes, lower swing arms and other bits and bobs including, if necessary, the shocks.
My car is over 3 years old, has done 60k miles and has a full dealer SH.The garage that's doing my work have not seen either the car or me before.
So if any of you are having problems, I'd get right down to the dealer.
