Powerflex on a 156 GTA front suspension??
My 156 GTA has powerflex bushes on the front suspension arms.
It has recently started making a creeking noise when driving slowly over speed bumps and knocks about a bit over pot holes. The front suspension feels a bit loss also when pulling away. None of the above feels that dodgey but its beginning to irritate me on the way this things do.
Do you think that the creaking is normal behaviour for Powerflex bushes. I'm a bit confused because there are posts on this forum that suggest that powerflex cure the noisy bushes problem but when I spoke to autolusso the other day they said that they never fit powerflex to the front suspension arms on the 156 because they always creek and squeek.
Please could I have your comments on where powerflex bushes are a worthwhile upgrade on the 156 GTA front arms.
BTW just put the alfaowner sticker in my rear window above the brake light... it looks great!
