  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have been told that apparently it is possible to make a 147 GTA anti-roll bar fit a 156 GTA, I'm not sure yet what changes are involved and was wondering if anybody here had done it? (Or knew of it having been done before). Whiteline do a fairly serious rear anti-roll bar kit for the 147...

    I've been trying to get hold of the "D" bushes for the front anti-roll bar on my 156 2.0 TS but found the dealers wanted to sell me the whole bar plus bushes at £132.16 :confused: Anyway i've found some Powerflex bushes at £12.95 a pair:) I just need to find out the diameter of the Anti-roll...

    Hi Would i get a knocking noise from a worn ARB or just poor handling? Most of the suspension parts are quite new on the front. Cheers:wow:

    hello everybody - I am going to replace the rubber mounts on the front anti-roll bar. Does anyone know if this is a straightforward job, or it needs some fiddling to fit the new bushings. Any tricks/ recommendations? How long do you reckon this jon would take, having the car on a lift? Thanks in...

    When poking around the rear of my Bella (much to her disgruntlement – ended up with some rust in my eye) I noticed that the arb bushes look past their best. Well, they are 6 years old. I assume droplinks would be overkill until I eliminate the arb. 1. Is this an easy socket off and on job, or...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hello could any body give me an idea how much it costs to replace the front anti-roll bar, the bushes have had it on mine.

    I have been searching for uprated anti-roll bars for the Q4 on intenet, but not found any. Anyone who knows where to find them? /A
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Replaced these at the weekend and it was a piece of cake .... Like hell!! Removing the original links went like this ... Removed the top nut on offside ... 5 minutes. Used a torq drive to hold the bolt steady and a ring spanner to remove the nut. Same for nearside. Knew this would be ok as...

    Anyone installed the autodelta ARB kit on their 147 1.6 TS? I'm planning to install but have no idea how is the comparison against eibach ARB and others. Anyone have any experience to share? ;)

    Like almost all others, my Alfa started to produce squeaking sounds - but already at 1,5 years and 15000 km. OK, here are bad roads, but not that bad :-( For now, it is not very loud, and it can be heard mostly when car goes over few bumps and starts to swing left-right-left.... Bad situation is...

    Hi guys. I'm new in this forum and my 1st time posting here. Greetings.. Just wondering, any of you guys here tried aftermarket, such as Eibach or Novitec anti-roll bar for 147? Any comments? Thanks.
  13. Alfa 155
    Has anybody changed their front anti-roll bar bushes, I've done the end links and I wondered how hard it is to do the bushes that fix the anti-roll bar to the crossmember.... :D :D
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys Will fitting thicker anti-roll bars (front + back) increase the understeer characteristics of the 156? Thanks Cooljazz
  15. Alfa 155

    After changing my discs, I discovered that the clunking from my wishbones was actually the ant-roll bar. The bit that connects it to the wishbone has snapped. I know the broken bit can be bought for about £10 (thx Wrinx and JB), but just wondered how easy/hard it would be to do myself (I have...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a front anti-roll bar which has a lot of lateral movement. My mech (non-alfa) reckons that the bushes under the 2 mounting plates (which bolt through the subframe) are shot and he thinks they should be replaceable as they have a split in them. Spoke to EBSpares and Alfa Spares and they...

    can anyone tell me the exact size of eibach/zender antiroll bars,front and rear.cheers.
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Over the last 18 months my 156 has suffered from poor ride, knock from front right and vibration through the front of the car. After new shocks, tyres, alloys, front wishbones (at suggestion of N.Wales dealer), the problem was still there if a little improved. Anyways after Kender's suggestion...
