  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    While having my 2001 GTV serviced at my Alfa specialist, he mentioned one of the rear suspension balljoints will need replaced shortly, but although spares catalogues list them as a seperate part, he's tried for years to obtain them and a complete arm is the only solution. However i've just...

    Who knows about balljoints? There is a balljoint on each side of the car which connects the tip of the wishbone to the vertical link / hub and on my car both of these have rubber boots which are split. From what I can see the balljoints are part and parcel of the wishbones - does this mean I...

    I started on the Q4's front supension rebuild today, got the n/s (lhs) wishbone, anti roll bar drop link and Eibach spring fitted. A few niggles but as I was new to working on this car it was to be expected. Started on the o/s (rhs) and hit a few problems unfortunately. One of the bolts holding...
