    Hello, I'm just fitting an uprated anti-roll bar...but since I took it apart a year ago (without taking photos), i cannot figure out if the anti-roll bar should go under or over the steering arm, or if I have fitted the anti-roll bar the correct way up?...I think it is the wrong way around...
  2. Rear anti-roll bar very rusty

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Noticed that my rear anti-roll bar is very rusty both sides of where the bushes have worn the paint away. It's spread about 6" from the bushes and looks to have corroded quite badly, more than just surface rust but only a worry if the bar is actually a thin walled tube. There's no play in the...

  9. Front Tower Arm Strut Anti-Roll Bar

    Alfa 155
    I would like to know if there is someone out there who fitted this strut, and have some feed back on how the car handles with this mod alone, or if lowering the car would be a better way to improve the handling, or both.

  13. Knocking after new rear anti-roll bar links

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just changed my rear anti-roll bar links but now it developed another sound which is quite different and much sharper than before. It's not really knocking, it's like a nut in a can moving from one side to the other. The anti-roll bar link is very tight, should there be any play at all? I'm...

    I get the occasional 'donk' sound from the front ( usually if I'm turning ), and at speed under hard acceleration a 'drift' to the right. Is this the symptoms of a duff ARB? cheers :)
