  1. Running 17's bumpy ride? Optimal suspension solution

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Lowering my car the facts: From the start my car came with the standard 3 spoke 17's and from the first kms I noticed that it was a pretty rough ride and a small disapointment because the satndard shocks and springs dont support the big wheels and I think they are pretty the same with the...
  2. 156 veloce ride Height

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    as part of my on-going saga with my new JTS, (see Rejected dejected thread), I want to double check my car has Veloce Suspension.

  4. Had a pssenger ride in a Focus RS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    driven by a racing driver and..............he just thought its was "alright".The diff just means he can throw it everywhere and hang on and the car WILL NOT spin (ok so you can't defy the laws of physics but believe me,if you span that thing you should stick to Scalextric). Great brakes and...

    General Alfa Discussion
    After reading the recent posts in the "For Sale" and the discussion about ride heights, I thought I'd ask how peoples cars compare to other 155's they've seen. I know Wrinx was gonna ask this anyway, eh Wrinx ???? My 1994 Silverstone is standard as far as I know. Compared to Shugs 8 valve, my...

  8. ideas to fix bumpy ride

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have the 17" supersports and they are a tad fidgety at speed over a bumpy twisty bit.I reckon its the extra unsprung weight so will prolly benefit from uprated springs.Autodelta do some 25mm sports springs which they reckon will get the tyres down quicker.Any thoughts? And while I'm at...
