Off-side rear suspension arm/ spring pan

Hi everyone. Following a disastrous MOT I have gone to a proper garage for a second opinion! The only part that he is struggling to find is an Off-side Rear Suspension Arm/ Spring Pan, which the rear coil sits in. It is badly corroded and is a common problem apparently.
Is anyone breaking a GTV or know of someone who would have this part or a matching pair for sale? Any help greatly appreciated.

Try EB spares or Parts World for new parts or look on eBay for second hand.

Hi, I have a couple of pairs.
They'll need to be cleaned up and either repainted or powder coated. The have minor corrosion but the spring seat is solid. They are fitted with powerflex bushes. You'll need to get some washers to space the hub end out.
The other set are just the spring pan without any bushes. Again these are a solid set. You can then fit powerflex bushes- eb spares or the standard ones available from Alfaholics.

Drop me an email if you're interested and I can send you some photos and discuss cost later when I get home.

Thanks Adam. I have sourced some but they are a bit slow in replying. If I don't get anywhere I will message you, many thanks.

A possibility, cheaper than genuine Alfa but still not cheap Schwingarm / Querlenker Alfa GTV / Spider (916) 60 - Alfa Romeo Ersatzteile - Italia Ricambi. I have used the company a few times without problem.
