Shock absorbers advice please
My 156 v6 has the non sport pack shocks fitted and I think there in need of replacing. There not leaking or anything and I passed the mot in April no problems but I think they may be going soft. A few times Ive driven over a speed bump and it's grounded on the underside of ther front lower bumper. Also the exhaust front pipe is flattened underneath and it wont be long before it's worn through.
I dont have the money tho throw at a set of sports coilovers (although I'd love to fit a set) but If i bought a set of standard sport pack shocks and some new springs would this stiffen everything up. I've just bought a set of new front pipes and dont want to fit them if I'm just going to keep grounding them and wear a hole in them in 3 months.
Owning an Alfa is not a matter of life or death...... It's much more important than that.
