Fitting FSD & Eibachs to the 156

Finally decided to order the FSD's & Pro-kit springs in the next week or so & I'm just wondering is there anything else I need to aid the fitting, new nuts & bolts for instance or any hints & tips or pitfalls?

I have a very competent local garage with all the latest hi-tech gear & tools but he's not an Alfa specialist so any extra tips will be most welcome.

All components on the car are absolutely fine, wishbones etc.

Re: Fitting FSD & Eibachs to the 156

I would replace all the bolts and get new drop links too(front and rear). If your wishbones have seen better days, it's worth doing those at the same time too as it should reduce the labour cost as they are easier to do with a shock/spring change.

You'll need the tracking checked and adjusted afterwards too.

Cheers,

Mark

Droplinks for sure, I've been re-using all my nuts and bolts, they are fine, but they were all off two years ago when the coilovers were fitted..
