  3. Quick question: GT sagging on the left rear

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So today i just noticed my GT is sitting about two inches lower on the left side compared to the right (and indeed, lower then she sat previously) The odd thing is, my garage replaced the rear shocks less then two weeks ago, because the old ones had developed the dreaded rusty spring seats, and...
