    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys! My '05 GT JTD has a knocking sound in the front when I'm going over some speed bumps, pot holes or uneven road after my ARB bushes have been changed, as if the wheels are shaking off. My upper wishbones were changed around a month ago - at the same mechanic, not an Alfa specialist but...
  3. Rear ARB bush diameter

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, Apologies this seems a stupid question - was there an obvious split between vehciles fitted with an 18 or 21mm rear ARB?

  7. Track Control Arm Bush

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I was just wondering if anyone has fitted these Meyle HD Track arms? Note the bush isn’t OE Standard which ive found that the OE style design is a bit of an Achilles heel for the upper arms on the Brera/159/Spider I think a rubber type design may work much better, and maybe last much longer...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, I had to have the rear trailing arm, front left spring and some bushes replaced in the last weeks.

  10. 147 failed gear linkage bush (presumably)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone, I was out in my 147 (recent purchase) this evening and my gearstick came loose between gear-changes. The stick is stuck over on the left side, but will freely move up and down, and as such it's currently stuck in second. Presumably one of the linkage bushes has failed in this cold...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I know there are countless threads about the old Poly vs OEM question and that this has been discussed to exhaustion but... Upon researching for my own car I have noticed that Superflex make a spring pan outer bush which looks quite different from all the other usual poly bush suppliers. This...
  14. 159 lower wishbone rear bush (front)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, my car failed MOT as the lower wishbone rear bush seem to be loose. Tried to google some instructions regarding changing the bush but couldnt really find any for 159. Has somebody changed the rear bush only without changing the whole lower wishbone? If I understand correctly, it's...

    Hi can anybody tell me where I can get the bush circled on the diagram . can't seem to find one. Eper doesn't list any bushes just the fixing bolts or the complete hub. Anyone any clues??? £278 for a squeaky bush seems a bit excessive :headache:

    The front offside bottom arm rear bush on my 2.2s Brera has split. After initially thinking the judder and wobble it caused could have been driveshaft related - I've seen this has been an issue on some Breras - I've been told it is the split bush - I've seen the split after having it pointed out...
