  1. Bought second hand coilovers from Autolusso. Can't pass NCT due to imbalance...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm after putting KW2 coilovers on it that I bought from Autolusso. They were used but apparently in good condition. Now the car is failing for having a suspension imbalance on the front. There is an imbalance limit of 30%. Mine was 43%. It also says I have a worn wish bone. Could this be...
