  1. Alfa 159 - Rear Toe and Camber bolts seized

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've recently purchased a 08 159 2.4 JTDm and during the "new" car inspection and fixs I've been told that the rear alignment can't be done due to seized screws. Aparently I'll need the screws and the bush but i can't find any definite answer to which part numbers I'll need to do this repair...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Ok, This is the next observation from my tear down of the recently built suspension to fix issues. I know this has probably been gone over loads of times but I did find it difficult to get answers regarding the difference in the top arms between the 2.0 and 3.0 versions and probably answers...
  4. 159 Wheel camber

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I need some advise please. On my 159 project. As mentioned elsewhere, the previous owner hit a curb with the front left wheel. Now that the new wheels are on its pretty obvious that the camber on that wheel is off. Not sure what you call it but the bottom is out. The brakes are not rubbing...

  7. KW v2 coilovers / upper mounting hole, bolt and camber adjustment

    Alfa GTA
    I am writing to you with a question concerning KW Coilovers V2 (it is valid also for V1 & V3). The upper mounting hole in rear shocks is oval (photo attached) - this means that rear wheel camber can be adjusted. But there is no info about it in KW V2 instruction manual. KW provides the same KW...

  10. Rear subframe damage, camber adjustment - does it need replacing?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right so I was taking a look at the rear subframe and saw that the rear camber adjustment extrusion on the subframe has snapped.

  12. -3.5 Camber Adjustment - 159 Wagon

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi there, could anyone point me to anything that might help with my camber problem. Not really sure where to start. I've got my 159 Sports Wagon pretty low on some Bilstein B14 Coilovers. The camber on the front is pretty crazy and it's eating through tyres. I know it's probably just too low but...
  13. kerb damage - negative camber

    Alfa Giulietta
    Wife hit o/s rear wheel on high kerb in a car park. The car now has pretty bad negative camber and has been adjusted as much as possible having taken for alignment so something is bent.

  14. Rear camber, adjustable?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Just wondering, is the camber angle on the rear suspension of the G adjustable? Since I got the car back from being repaired there appears to be less negative camber on the rear wheels than there was beforehand. The garage did mention repacing one of the suspension arms at the back as they...

  20. Those of you who are lowered... camber question...

    Alfa Giulietta
    To those who are lowered, whether it be springs, springs/shocks or coilovers... Did you see any natural camber upon lowering your car? In the negative direction? Considering wheel options, and I'd like to go a bit wider, and get them as flush to the fenders as possible. The rears should be OK...
