Alfa 147 JTDm

As DavidC has pointed out that all 147 share the same bearing hubs etc which is correct acordi g to eper part numbers. I think we had the uprights from a 156 which has a different bearing from the 147.

The upright/bearings are the same for 147...except for the GTA. I can confirm this as I fitted an upright from a 2000 2litre TS to a 2006 (facelift) 1.9JTDm. The ABS sensors had different plugs on the end, but that was easy to sort seeing as it's an inductive loop. Cut the plugs off each (cutting the same amount of cable with each so when joined it's the same length as before. Works perfectly. I know as I had to do that too
