Re: Squeaky suspension on GT
I had this same problem... It is infact the upper wishbone bushes that are faulty. You have three options;
1 replace the upper wishbone (about £30-45 plus fitting)
2 replace bushes for soem uprated ones as Alfa dont supply amy (powerflex do a set for £44 then you need them fitting)
3 The fix i did was to grease the existing bushes (about £5 for some sprag grease). As long as your wishbone is not damaged.
I know grease is not the best fix, but i found out about this from an Audi Engineer. He claims they do this on pre 2006 Audi TT's as they have a similar problem to my Alfa GT. I greased mine 2 weeks ago and the squeak has vanished (note the handling has not been affected).
The best product to use is Waxoyl or use a spray grease (make sure it is water resistant and durable)
Can anyone else help on this matter?
