I'm new here & after a little advice/information...
I believe it's a fairly common 147 issue where the shock absorber rusts so the spring drops & rests on the tyre - it happened on the passenger side about 6 months ago, which I had repaired at my local garage, & has just happened on the...
I need to replace the rear shock absorber on my 147 jdt 16v. The car is used very little and I might keep it another two years before I scrap it so I don't want to buy something very expensive. Any suggestions on some cheap shock absorbers that are not to bad. How about those ones? Sorry its in...
I have a Alfa Romeo 156 Sportswagon Q4 and my rear right shock absorber broke, and i need a new one. It uses a special shock absorber different from the one on regular front wheel drive 156. My alfa dealer says its the part number 50705575 but that one is out of production and I can't find å...
I've just replaced the front suspension on my 98 spider, shocks and springs, with a good quality used set as a result of one of them leaking oil.
I have the originals and I want to try rebuilding them with new seals and fresh oil etc for 2 reasons. Firstly I want to see how difficult...
Hey there, anyone know if there's a significant difference between shock absorber part numbers 60686812 specified for cars 2003-onwards and 60670494 specified for pre-2003 cars... i.e., are they interchangeable or not?
Probably the ones already fitted
I read a lot of posts on Alfa Owner and certain manufacturers get a lot of mentions without much technical analysis.
Q - So what is a good shock absorber
A – The one that is just right; not too hard and not too soft.
The job of the shock absorber is to keep...

Hi guys as questioned above, my rear shocks have had it, i'm comparing prices at the moment and want to know if it's possible to install the struts off a 156 onto my 147. I've searched for the question already but I didn't find a clear answer. Correct me if I didn't look hard enough ;)
My off side rear shock absorber broke today. The cup that holds the bottom of the spring snapped and then the spring pushed it down onto the tyre.
I carried on driving a bit as there was no hard shoulder. By the time I got to a slip road the rear tyre was on fire but still inflated. I had to...
Hi folks, general question really.
My spider suffers from quite a hard ride and handling feels a bit dead and wooly, so I am thinking f replacing the shocks s they look like originals and the car is 13 years old so must be knackered by now.
I'm looking to change initially the rear shocks on...
Does anyone know a website that sells KYB Shock Absorbers for 1999 2.0 TS GTV with reasonable worldwide shipment?
I have to change my front and rear shock absorbers and the genuine alfa romeo shock absorbers cost a lot of money at where i live:/
Thanks in advance:beer:
I have a question if someone could offer some advice.
I have Koni Gas adjustable shocks all round, On removing for a clean up i noticed...
On front 1 shock compression and returns the other does not return.
But both shocks have good resistance pushed in and and pulled out. and also...
I think I need a new pair of shocks on the rear of my 2006 1.9 JTDm GT cos it really doesn't like going round corners! (The rear feels less planted than the front and seems to squirm about more than acceptable).
I am going to get it all checked by a local indy, but I understand there...
Question for GTV owners. Do you have anything between the top of the shock absorber and the bodywork on the driver's side? Mine doesn't and the top of the shock seems to be contacting the bodywork which clearly isn't good for the long term health of the paintwork.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with seized shock absorber (front - and probably rears I suspect) bolts on 156 TS ? Is the only solution to cut the bolts then spend a day drilling them out ?
I have had my 156 off the road for about 2 months now. Going over most of it and fixing as much as I can. Looking up into the front left side wheel arch today it looks like the top cap is out of position. I can see the "tags" on the rubber top. Not so on the right hand side. I took a photo. Any...
Dear Alfisti, I want to buy a new or in good condition, 4-bolt shock absorber top mount for my 1978 Alfasud (the only Series 2 in Cyprus), as per attached drawing.
Please let me know if you can spare one to ship to Cyprus. Many thanks.

I had my 156 written off, cat c due to a drunken driver crashing into it while it was parked on the road. His insurance have given me 700 or 635 and I keep the car, so I'm keeping the car. I need to replace the rear drivers side shock, my car is the Veloce but how do I know which shock I need...
