    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I know this topic will have been done to death on here over the years but struggling to find the info I'm after. What are the factory camber and toe settings for a 1.9 GT? I know it's been said many times to go for less toe out, or even 0 toe. But what does the manual say? Got the GT in for...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I kerbed my nearside front wheel quite badly a few months ago and afterwards the car seemed to be pulling slightly to the left, so I decided to get the alignment checked. Before I did, I replaced the tyres, which were both badly worn on the inside edge. With new tyres (Conti Sport Contact 5s)...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Is it necessary to have the wheels realigned after fitting Eibach lowering springs on a Lusso (25-30mm drop)?. I'm fitting 19" wheels also. Also, when fitting (front springs) is it best to lift both front wheels of the ground together? If not will it created tension in the drop link which I...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So, I recently bought a GTV and it has some steering issues. While driving, it pulls slightly to the right or to the left and it seems worse when breaking, it just won't go straight for more than a few meters. Anyone got an idea what could it be?
  18. Rear wheel alignment

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    following some suspension work I need to set the rear wheel toe on my 98 V6 The manual gives a setting of 3mm +/- 1mm rear toe but does not specify wheel size for this measurement, am I right in thinking the standard wheel size was 16" as this should be used for toe measurement

  20. Will I need a proxy alignment if...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    ...I remove the window switch? I'm wanting to pull out the switch and remove the sticky top coat that we get on our window switches, so I'll be putting the same unit back in. Am I right in thinking that a proxy alignment is only needed when a 'new to the car' item is replacing an old one? Cheers.
