Alfa 156 front suspension rebuild advice.
My 156 has clocked up a fair few miles - 157k now and the front suspension is knocking a bit so I thought I'd go the whole hog and replace everything.
This includes upper and lower wishbones and droplinks, and anti-roll bar bushes.
I'm thinking I can drop the subframe to do the ARB bushes quite easily with the wishbones and drop links disconnected.
Is there a thread on how to do this?
The kind of questions I have are:
how long to allow for the job?,
have I forgotten any parts?,
what are the best points to lift the car with assuming the subframe's coming off?
Does the engine support itself without the subframe?
If the ARB is rusted around the bushes is it better to renovate it with paint or just use a load of grease?
Any other hints or tips that would be useful.
