I own an alfa romeo mito 1.4tb 155. I think the stance of it is kinda way too high out of the factory, I managed to get my hands on some Stance + coilovers for about 70 euros a few months back but I have been hesitant to put them on, as there doesn't seem to be anything online for the...
Hi guys I'm in the middle of fitting the rear coilovers and stopped for a t break now the original springs are off,
Just looking at the adjustable coilovers, anyway probably should have asked before starting but I'm assuming the bump stop cup has to go?
And the coilovers go in this order...
I am getting my 2000 TS out of storage and treating her to a full respray. Everything else on the car has either been upgraded or in excellent condition and the only other thing I want to do is fit coilovers. So, anyone out there that has a set they bought and never fitted or took of an...
Has anybody used coilover protectors or spring bags on a GTA? I am about to fit some KW V3s and it seems sensible to try and protect them. Can anybody foresee a problem or suggest a good product?

I'm having trouble buying a FK coilover kit because they're listed on many vendors' sites but don't seem to exist in reality...
Do you know if I could buy a kit for other Tipo-based cars like Alfa 155 or Fiat Coupé and fit that in the front and figure out some other solution in the...
I have a Eibach Pro street S coilovers on my 156 now, they are 5-6 years old, the springs are rusty, and im think they are ready to go.
The reason i think they need to go is becouse they are extremely hash and hard. I can notice every hole, pump, uneaven roads, and its just a...
The rolling "restoration" of my 156 GTA continues ... And the next thing that needs attention is the Intrax coilovers that have been on the car since near new and 60k. The rear shocks are clunking very slightly but enough to bug me when everything else is now sorted.
Have been quoted over 700...
So in a few weeks I'm getting some coilovers for my 3.2 2007 Brera.
My question is while the struts etc are out what else should I change. I'm not doing the bushes, too big a job. Should I at least replace the top mounts for the front suspension? Drop links?
has anyone heard of this company?
has any one got any experience with them?
should i stay clear?
the price seem to good to be true,
my old 156 i had dropped at the front by 40mm using novitec springs and the handling was fantastic was thinking of doing the same to my latest one, but when i say...

Funny.. K&W does not have any for GTV, but Spider on the other hand:
Coilover suspension - 15215005 - KW coilover variant 2 inox-line - KW Online product finder, direct from the manufacturer.
Will it work on a GTV?
I've been doing a lot of reading. I have been on KW V2s, KW Clubsports on my rides in the past but this time I am thinking of trying something different. I've much preferred the clubsports than the V2 but that's just personal preference.
Application is for fast road driving, and occasional...
Some advice please:
I have a 1998 phase 1 and owned it for the last 8+years
To date: C&B fast road cams, skimmed Gasflowed ported heads, K&N filter, new water pump, rad, oil cooler and pipes, coolant hoses, SS exhaust and uni-chip rolling road remap. Gearbox rebuild 3 years ago and change oil...
I have a question.
I think 1 of my coilovers is failing at the back. New costs a fortune (H&R Monotube coilover) and when I get it the ride is still harsh. :cry:
Thinking of swaping out my rear coilovers for Bilstein B8 shocks and when the time comes- front also. Is this OK for MOT? I am...
Yesterday I got an unexpected opportunity to lend corner weighting scales. Just for a short period and I had to drive quite a few miles to pick them up and return again, but it was worth it. Finally I know how much my GTA weights and I had a chance to play with weight distribution on my KW.
Bilstein or Koni shock +ebich spring for TS Spider
Throwing this question out to the UK owners,
Ive realized Im unable to sell my car in the current market so might as well keep it for a while.
My shocks are shot and I keep bottoming out most bumps and speed humps even at low speed. Bilstein...
