    Can anyone help Do you know if the above are height adjustable ? Recently had an 'indie' subject the car to rear shockers replacement and to my horror car seems "extremely hard" and 'higher' at the rear than normal.

    Anyone know how easy it is to change the rear shock absorbers for a 156 SW (2003) ?? Or better yet, anyone know if there are any guides available! Mine are keeping noise on every move they make. I'm pretty sure it's the shocker itself as my mechanic checked all the arms and bushes etc. and...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Time to put my hand in my rather deep Scottish pockets..... and I am going to replace wishbones and shockers all round. I have the chance of a low mileage suspension setup from a 156 v6 Veloce saloon.... ....I just wanted to know if it will fit my 156 2.0ts Sportswagon. Redundancy means I...

Where, in the past,I found the ride very"twitchy" when hustled through side roads and rather uneasy even on main roads at high speeds.Now the car is far more planted and more pleasurable to drive fast.I did consider Eibach...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Right , after starting to replace the front upper and lower wishbones on my 156 v6 I noticed one of the coil springs was broken and after 9 years of grit and grime the shocks are looking well past it too. So it looks like I'm going to have to part with some money and buy a complete set of...
  20. General Motoring Discussion
    I took Mrs R's Punto to the local Fiat dealer today to complain of a 'rumble' coming from the back end. After a test drive with a 'technician' (spotty YTS kid) and a 30 minute wait I was told the car needed both rear shockers replacing, thankfully under warranty. The car is 16 months old with...
