Re: front suspension replacement

Expect to pay about £500 in the UK for springs and shock absorbers.

If you just want to change the shock absorbers, Alfa dealers quote one hour per corner so that should give you an idea.

If you go for springs as well it could take up to twice as long (and be sure to have the wheel geometry reset afterwards or the tyres will scrub away very quickly).

The kit you choose is up to you. For a kit to fit and then forget about, try the Autodelta sport/comfort pack. This is not adjustable but will lower by about 25mm and improves the handling of the car without making the ride too hard.

That is just a suggestion as there are a lot of different choices and it depends on what you want.
