1969 GTV

69 gtv suspension issues

I'm a newcomer and am very happy to have this resource to help me nurse my alfa along. I have had 3, all gtvs (1967, 1973, and current 1969) with the 69 being my alltime favorite.

Here is my question. I've owned the car since 1980 and other than replacing 2 tie rods, have done nothing to the suspension. On the passenger side, camber is off pretty dramatically (I think in the negative direction--top of wheel closer than bottom relative to engine compartment). If I were Donald Trump, I'd do a complete suspension replacement. However, my wallet would prefer doing the job gradually, fixing the worst things first. My first guess about the camber problem is that I need to replace both ball joints on that side.

Any advice?

Howdy. Nice car. It could be worn ball joints, but might also be wishbone and/or upper arm bushes (probably upper arm from what you describe). 'Fraid it's not a job I've done myself, so can't help with the relevant techie stuff.
