  1. Which shocks / springs for GTV?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, I was hoping to get some recommendations for a good shock / spring combo for my V6 GTV project car. I want a slight drop in ride height (around 20mm or so) and better handling but probably don’t need adjustable shocks. I don’t want to lose my fillings over bumps either ideally! I...
  2. PH3 Spider 2.0TS front shocks needed

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Well, I was doing so well. Removed the front shocks from one side. Turret bolts came out without shearing. Spring compressed without tears. It wasn't too dreadful. However the new ones I had ready to fit are the Ph1/2 type with no bolt plate fitted for the PH3 anti roll bar links to...

  4. How To: Change Rear Shocks

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Changed the rear shocks recently, so thought I'd write a how to. Mine was a TS. Not sure if the procedure is the same on the V6 (I think it might be). 1. Loosen (but don't remove) the wheel bolts 2. Jack the rear of the car up at the side you are replacing first and support on an axle stand...
  5. GTV -96 3.0 front shocks

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guys Looking to source some front shocks for my early GTV 3.0 There are not too many affordable alternatives here in Sweden. Found these TRW JGM230T that I cant figure out why they wouldn´t fit. According to the listings it shouldn´t fit: GTV 16201; AR 32310; Petrol 150 110 2.0...
  6. Squadra Sportiva shocks - are they any good?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, Going through a famous site for Alfa Romeo parts (I don't know if links are allowed), I noticed they offer a Squadra Sportiva Gas Pressure Shock Absorber - Rear Axle at a very affordable price (~50EUR) for the 147/156/GT. Is there someone here with personal experience with the...
  7. Gtv 916 JTS Front Shocks

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My GTV Phase 3 GTV JTS front shocks are in need of replacement. I have now become aware the front shocks are out of production and there are no after market ones. I can see from threads JTS owners are saying that a change of roll bar and drop links for the T spark units allows the t spark shocks...
  8. TS Front Shocks

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Is there much choice of front shocks for the 2.0 TS (phase 1) these days? I'm planning a suspension refresh but I've only come across TRW front shocks, or unbranded from shop4parts. Seems to be a few options for rear shocks but not for the fronts.
  9. Sprint front shocks

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi ! I am new to the forum and a proud owner of an 1985 Sprint 1.4. The only big issue with the car are the front shocks (still wears the original SPICA) . I don't seem to able to find any replacements (I understand that Monroe shocks can also be used) , so is there any other solution? I read in...
  10. Experience novitec shocks

    Alfa GTA
    Does anyone has experience with the standard novitec shocks (if so in combination with eibach springs)? As mentioned in another topic bilstein doesn't deliver the B6/B8 dampers i would like. Mailed with Autolusso and they recommend the novitec shocks instead. So just wondering if anyone has...
  11. For sale: NEW front shocks for V6 (original Alfa ref.60626914)

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone - yes, you read it correctly :rotate: As I continue my mega parts spring-clean here (and thus narrowly avoid the divorce courts here with my missus, who is delighted to get some space back at home!), I have decided to part with two brand new Alfa V6 shocks. The reference number is...
  12. Rear shocks for 156 1.9 JTD Sportwagon

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can anyone shed any light on getting replacement rear shocks for a 2004 156 1.9 JTD Sportwagon 16V 140bhp? I bought a pair and when fitting, found the new ones were around an inch too long. Supplier says they are correct for that model (they are taking them back, fortunately). Has anyone come...
  13. Spider 2.0 TS Shocks

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi again all, '97 2.0TS Spider Phase 1.5 needs shocks all round, KYB is looking probable for the rear, so this is more about the fronts. Can't really afford Koni, and not 100% they're compatible with the car anyway, so the choice seems to be between Monroe Reflex or TRW on the brand front. Can...
  14. 164 front shocks

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  16. GT 1.9jtd Cloverleaf rear shocks spec

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Once suffered a rear end collapse on a 156 when the spring cup on a rear shock collapsed. Planning to avoid the same fate on my GT green cloverleaf 1.9 Jtd 2009 but difficult to find the specification for the Mcpherson strut. It is obviously different from standard as the suspension is lower...
  17. Rear shocks

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have 3.2 q4 159, it needs two rear shocks, where is best for them? I just want standard replacement units as I want to keep the springs. Thanks
  18. Alfa 156 GTA. New front shocks and springs weak and more bottoming than before

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All Fitted Koni front shocks and springs. Adjustable for hardness but not for height. I live up a windy lane so a lot of bottoming and it's no better since fitting the konis. Front springs look puny to my untrained eye and wondered if there was a better alternative perhaps height adjustable...

  20. TopLine Shocks

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    just wondered if folks rated this brand, are they oe std or better or worse. Shop4parts sell them for the gtv/spider 3.0 and I just wondered if they would be suitable. Cheers
