I just went to my Alfa Specialists and he said I need 2 new front shocks bilstein or koni but the rears are fine. Would that be ok to leave the rear shocks standard ? He said theres no need to get the backs changed unless you want to go the extra expense. He also said the right rear bump stop needs replacing and maybe two front bump stops also but hard to tell till you take the shocks out. So possibly 4 new bumb stops. And lastly right front lower control arm needs replacing ! So Ive got a bit of work that needs to be done and some money $$ to save up.
He also reckoned that the right front control arm needs replacing as thats where the squeak comes from when driving. But when I pressed on both the left and right front shocks on the outside there was no noise from the right hand shock but a squeaking noise from the left front shock. Who is right then is it the left or right lower control arm that needs replacing or is that noise coming from the shocks themselves or am I reading it wrongly ?
