  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...

    Hi guys. I am looking for a new set of coil springs to replace my now, floppy set. If anyone has any leads besides me having to look abroad, it would be great! Thank you kindly Bruce Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. 147 front caliper anti-rattle springs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Mine have vanished, and the pads are rattling. When I changed the pads the new springs didn't seem to fit well, and clearly they didn't. I spent an hour today trying to fit new ones, the same Ferodo FBA526 as the pair that have gone missing. I've checked and they are listed as correct, but...

  5. 147 Eibach performance springs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone. My son had a 147 and was going to fit lowering springs on it. He bought some new Eibach springs, then sold the car and never fitted them. I know he paid nearly £200 for them and I put them on ebay for £100, but no interest. What are they really worth?
  6. Review - Novitec -40mm Springs Fitted

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Thought I'd make a post about this, as I couldn't find anyone who had reviewed them on a 156 - for a diesel anyway! A while back, I fitted Bilstein B8's to the car along with Eibach -30mm springs. To be fair, going on positive reviews and two trusted brands, I honestly thought that this was a...
  7. Eibach lowering springs or cheap coilover?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi all, I own an alfa romeo mito 1.4tb 155. I think the stance of it is kinda way too high out of the factory, I managed to get my hands on some Stance + coilovers for about 70 euros a few months back but I have been hesitant to put them on, as there doesn't seem to be anything online for the...
  8. Lowering springs on my 166

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I have a standard 2000 166. They seem to ride very high. It's an extremely comfortable setup which I like but it does detract from the looks. I was thinking about putting on TI springs or similar. Are they harsher? I don't want to turn it into a sports car, just improve the look a little bit really.
  9. 147 Front Springs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Are 147 front springs known to compress or weaken over time? Its not something I've come across with other brands but my car seems to 'bottom out' very easily. The ride height seems OK but the undertray scrapes when I hit anything other than a small bump. I'm thinking its possibly time to...

  12. 156 sw 1.9 jtd Ti springs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As the title suggests my car is a 2005 156 sport wagon with a 1.9 diesel engine and in TI format, I would like to source the original sport chassis springs for this as mine are well on their way out, I have tried eper but the versions I have used give multiple choices, this is not narrowing it...

  14. Alfa 147 OMP lowering springs?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have a guy selling a set of lowering springs. I’ve driven and rode in the car and it was incredibly stable, I thought it was on Eibachs, as they are red. Turns out - they are OMP OVA/2718 - 25mm lowering. Picture included of the rear springs. Has anyone had experience with this brand...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Lots of threads about replacing snapped springs and questions over lowering heights. Please see below a list I compiled for another thread (the info is buried halfway in the thread). Most people end up going for Eibach pro kit as a set of 4 can be had from alfisti.net for £120, same price as 1...

    Hello, I have a giulietta 1.6 JTDM 105cv distinctive model. I bought the quadrifoglio giulietta springs and I want to keep the car's standard shock absorbers. Will I have a problem? The reason for changing the springs is to lower the height of the car. Thank you.

  20. 147 Bilstein B6 and springs question

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. I was going to pm Fruity with my question but I think there may well be a few that would find my question interesting. I have a first series 147 TS 2.0, a fine little car. It needs some suspension work - the usual wishbones and draglinks - but also I have sourced both front and rear...
