Koni Front Shocks
Just came across your posting...I fitted Koni Sport Fronts to my GTV, so I'm assuming they are the same as mine, ref. no. 87411324 SP. Like you, mine also came with those white plastic split washers. I fitted them as required. I can't say if there is any specific reason why to do so on the GTV, but I have fitted many sets of Konis on my Alfas over the years and I do recall the first set I fitted to an Alfasud Sprint also contained those washers. I omitted to fit them. For some reason I was later told that I should have. Needless to say I later discovered that both front shocks had been leaking for some time. Perhaps due to some kind of ingress of dirt...? I can't say for definite if these washers are some sort of dirt prevention measure or not, but I later replaced them with another set and included these plastic washers .....they never leaked since. I have always included them in every fitting of shocks on other Alfas since..Hope this helps bearing in mind the cost of Konis...!!!
