New 147 suspension problems... again

I have a new 147 and after about 800 miles I had the nearside front arm replaced as the suspension was noisy over bumps.
2500 miles later and the problem seems to have come back. Is there a known problem with the 147 suspension?

Re: New 147 suspension problems... again

Hi greysoda, my new(now 6 mths old) 147 2Lt has done 6000kms (3800 miles) and I haven't experienced any problems. Look at some older threads to see if it has been dealt with before on this site.

There have been examples of non-Alfa parts not lasting very long. We've had example of upper wishbone ball-joint rubbers splitting in weeks of being fitted.

I bought some drop-links for a Pug from ebay and they lasted less than two months!
