My wife's 1987 '33' is starting to handle a little erraticly. Tends to wander about a fair bit, even when the steering wheel is pointed straight, when turning it feels slow to respond & heavy, then will suddenly grab & go where you want it, steering is ~heavy~ at parking speeds & it has an appalling turning circle (is this normal? It has a turning circle about 2m larger than even my old work truck does...).
Long & the short of it, i'd like to know what I should be looking at to make it handle like it should?
Changing all the rubber bushes to poly & new front dampers are on the cards (maybe strut-top rubbers too, if available), but i've heard of strut bearings? failing that can cause problems like this. Are these available aftermarket or are they a part available solely from Alfa? (ie expensive?)
Anyone got a listing on a bushing package, or part numbers for individual items?
Also, are the front struts the same in the first, second and third series 33's, or do they change somewhere along the line? I've been offered a set of new struts for a series 1 & want to make sure they'll work before I buy them...
