Suspension problem with 166
Hi, I have an Alfa 166TS and over the past year a problem has developed with the rear suspension.
Every time I go over a bump, the back of the car shakes from side to side. I changed the shocks thinking this was the problem but no change. Over the past 6 months I also changed, front upper and lower arms, both rear hubs(bushes had gone), and left rear arm (front bush felt a bit soft), but the problem is still there. Needles to say I had the suspension checked in two garages and did a laser allignment of the wheels. No problems found!
Also on hard braking the steering wheel moves left to right (not just to one side) and if the front right wheel goes over a white line (road marking) it pulls to the right. Car has 17", 225/45 tyres (less than a year old)
I had a 75 and a 164 before and never experienced anything like it.
Is this a quirk of the 166?
