    I have had the FSD's on my car for almost 3 years now, they have done 40k since i installed them in the car with the original dampers. They used to feel like they improved the damping but my feeling lately is that they have deteriorated and the car feels like how it felt with the original...

    At this moment I am thinking of changing suspension of my GTA SW. Would like to compensate slamming of the heavy nose and wobbling in high-speed bends (although the installed OMP strutbar already gave quite some improvements) and bring down the back (standard it is much high than the front). In...

    Hi to all, I installed the koni fsd shocks with standard springs. Big improvement in corners, on fast roads and at low speeds. And a lot of more comfort in comparison to the standard shocks. I am sadisfied. Thats what I wanted. Thanks to all. But I noticed, that my ride height changed now. In...

    hi, today I received my koni fsd shocks. I kwow a lot of people her are driving fsd, so perhaps someone can help. The front ones have this part number: 8745-1200 The rear ones: 8045-1021 My question: Are this the right parts for the 156 GTA?

    This is the first time I have seen this but it think it should be something to look out for as it could be perpetually dangerous We fitted this shock last week and it failed completely within 3 days And my technician made a mess on my desk :cry: Ned

    Hi all, after a bit of advice. I'm thinking of selling my 156ts Koni FSD dampers and also a set of Roddy Harvey Bailey springs (made by Eibach I think for EBSpares and are the best springs you can get in my opinion). Both have been on the car nearly 2 years but are in good condition. Thing is I...

    My 2002 156 2.4JTD Sportwagon is now at 140k miles. At about 100k I had complete new front suspension with std arms and Koni FSDs all round. New springs on the back 'cos the Novamat ones would not fit. I also had PU bushes in the rear suspenders. Now, when I leave for work in the morning on...

    Hi all I have a 2009 Mito 1.4 155cv with the Eibach -30mm springs fitted on original shocks. I find it to be too harsh and crashy over potholes and speedbumps. Well, the car feels very stiff on irregular roads, but in the other end, the shocks seem to be too soft on certain ocasions, causing...

    Finally got around to putting them in, but cant remember how the standards ones looked, after putting the front shocks back together they look to be a little bit on the p*ss? Is this normal, they are offset on the top which is why it looks like this I guess. Maybe they straighten up a bit once...
  12. Alfa 164 & 166
    ..so i went about ordering the shocks and it turns out there's an FSD shocks-and-springs kit for the 166..? Has anybody come across this anywhere..? at first i thought they were just quoting me for the 156 kit by mistake, but they checked and said it was a kit for the 166. i can't find any...

    Are the FSD and Eibach Pro springs different for the 147 GTA compared to the ones for a 147 2.0?
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok guys i promised i would report back. Ive had the fsd's on for a couple of weeks now so have had enough time to really test them out on the sussex backroads. My Gt is wearing 18 inch multispoke alloys et35 and to my surprise the rears rub the top of the arch liner! which was making a hell of...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just had them fitted and im experiencing loud squark noises from my rear shocks on cornering? both left and right? or when i hit an undulation or slight bump? Its really upsetting me? thought it was the tyre catching the arch but its not. So can only be to do with the shocks and springs? my...

    This appears to be my next move with the 156 and i will have the cash in two months to buy and have them fitted. However, before i do this i wondered if there was anyone in the Poole/Bournemouth area's that has a 156 with this set up that would kindly take me for a drive so i can 'feel' how they...

    And carnt wait to be honest. Will give a full report when they are on.:) Damien.

    I've had a good read through the various threads but not got a clear idea about the FSD's on a 156 TS. The Harvey Bailey kit is no longer available which was highly regarded. Now that technology has improved the koni FSD ‘s look to be the current best option for road comfort and the ocasional...

    Hi all, 50,000 miles ago I fitted Koni FSD dampers and Eibach Sport (I think) springs to my car, a 156 16V JTD Sport. Several million speed bumps and bad road surfaces later, I find that the handling is sloppy and choppy and that going round long sweeping bends with undulations at speed, the...
