147 Upper Wishbone advice please

Hi all

I have to replace the 2 top upper wishbones on my 147. Can anyone suggest what make to go for and the best place to buy. I have been on ebspares and alfaworkshop and they seem pretty reasonable. Is it best to go genuine or are some of the OEM makes better.

Cheers for any advice.

I've just done mine with genuine Alfa arms, some of the cheaper ones don't last very long and they are not that much cheaper anyway

You'll probably find the same manufacturer supplies Alfa and after-market ones. I got my last pair from EB about 18 months ago and they are still OK.

Double check the long mounting bolt as these do wear as well .. although mine lasted 140-150K but I have replaced both now.

Just bought a pair from Alfa workshop for a very reasonable 44 each and wil be with me Tuesday - can't agrue with that. Thought it best to get the bolts as well. Looking forward to getting some decent handling back.

Thanks for your advice.
