  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My 159 needs new shocks and I'm about to choose between the three brands of the title. Monroe are the cheapest and the other two (KYB, Sachs) have a really small difference price - wise. Your recommendations? Please bear in mind that these are my only three options. Anything else exceeds...

    Hi Guys, I'm thinking about replacing original shocks adsorber next spring, performances are getting low mile by mile. I've used several times KYB shocks as replace for the cars we have at home and I've noticed very nice results about comfort and handling. My Giulietta is 1,6jtdm 105 bhp not...

    Hi, I have upgraded both cars with new rear suspension as required & now want to do the front. Rear shocks were KYB & ideally want to match them up.... but I can't find KYB part numbers for the 3.0 (Cup) Any suggestions or a suitable alternative that will suit the KYB on the rear? TA Vans
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Our 20v's dampers are showing their age; unfortunately we're not made of money! Has anyone experience of KYB/Kayaba dampers on a 156 etc? Positive and negative are equally useful.

    Hi Newbie here with a question for you guys. Looking to replace all shocks on my 2.0 TS spider - I've read lots of the threads on here and both KYB and Bilstein shocks seem to get reports (Konis too pricey for me). My question is are the Bilsteins worth the extra dosh compared to the KYBs. It's...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My car has just started the rear arch rubbing thing. Not been under yet to see if the bump stops are still in place I guess probably not as the problem has only just started last week. When having a casual glance I noticed the previous owner had used KYB gas-a-just shocks on the back with red...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The front end of my '04 156 SW feels way past its best - currently at 96k. I think I might have damaged the shocks on the winter's potholes - couple of times when I've hit a deep one, I've got a loud 'crack' from the front suspension, which sounds to me like metal-on-metal (almost as if I'd...
