  2. Gonna do the drop links on the 147 tomorrow.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got the Meyle HD ones as replacements. I'm going to need to get the angle grinder out, aren't I? BTW, when I was doing the shocks I noticed the exhaust was pretty much rusted through. Any recommendations for replacement? Not looking for SS performance, just a straight swap.
