TS Front Shocks

Is there much choice of front shocks for the 2.0 TS (phase 1) these days? I'm planning a suspension refresh but I've only come across TRW front shocks, or unbranded from shop4parts. Seems to be a few options for rear shocks but not for the fronts.

From what I could gather, nope, that's your lot. I did a ton of searching for front shocks for my Ph1 and could only find the TRW ones available, bought them from Alfashop.

Not sure about the phase 1 but you can still get Koni yellows and Monroes for a phase 2 Twinnie. But you canít use 17Ē wheels and 225/45 tyres with the Konis.

Out of interest where can you find the Koni yellows? So I can look at the part numbers for cross-referencing.

Last time I looked there were loads on eBay and places like EB spares had them. Just had a quick look and this is all I could find although the photo looks like a V6 shock but it could just be a generic image so maybe supplies of Konis for Twin Sparks have dried up.

Thanks! Are the phase 2 shocks different from phase 1? I thought it was the phase 3 that was different as the stabilizer bars were in a different place (I remember reading that somewhere but can't remember where)

I think the part number for Twin Spark Koni yellow is 8471-1324.

As far as I know there is no difference between phase 1 and 2 shocks. Koni however only list their TS fronts as being for models 95-97. This is because the bit that the bottom of the coil spring sits on is lower than it is on other shocks. This is why 17Ē alloys with 225/45 tyres wonít fit as they will rub. Originally Alfa didnít offer the 916 Twinnie with anything apart from 16Ē wheels as standard. It was only later that 17s became an option but Koni never updated their front shock to allow for this.
