  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, first post here. I'm looking to lower my 2.4 Brera and improve the handling a bit, but I'm unsure how to do it. I've seen a few people have used the Eibach Pro-kit springs, which take it down by 30mm. However others have used or suggested Bilstein B12 or B16 coilovers. Is there a benefit...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi, I've owned my 2.2 brera S for 7 years now and my recent Mot has failed due to a cracked spring. I understand prodrive/eibach no longer manufacture these so Im looking for alternatives. Hoping for somthing which has similar height to the prodrive (anything lower is a bonus). I have looked at...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I’ve got a 2006 159 Sportwagon 2.2 with incorrect springs at the front! the car sits way too high and it’s become one of those passive annoyances i keep forgetting to deal with. i want to lower the fronts so they’re down to stock (or maybe very slightly lower) does anyone know the stock length...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Just noticed that a rear corner of my 159 SW Ti is sagging - and then found a half coil of metal lying on the drive, which helpfully told me that it’s time for a new pair of rear springs. I know there are lots of threads on the subject - and almost as many recommendations for Eibachs - but I...
  5. Alfa Giulia
    Hello all, just buying an RWD Giulia Veloce / 280 - however as it turns out, in my country they have the taller Q4 ride height. I am planning to swap springs with ones meant for "regular" markets. Could somebody please check the part numbers for springs & shocks for their RWD MY2020 280HP...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    It is quite obvious to me that my 156 V6 Sportwagon suspension has passed it's best. It was fitted with Koni yellow shocks before I bought the car and they are no longer up to the job. Before I get the suspension replaced I like to do a bit of research. I am no suspension expert but I like to...

    Took my car to kiwk to get alignment after changing track rod ends, they was seized solid so I fitted new. This is the print out they give me if anyone can explain.
  8. 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

    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...

    I have Eibach sport kit springs (-25mm) and TRW sport pack shocks for sale if anyone is interested.. https://www.gumtree.com/p/car-tuning-styling/alfa-gt-147-937-suspension-eibach-trw-25mm-lowering/1353619577 --
  12. 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?
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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.
  16. 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...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, I'm after some front springs for my 159 Q4 2.4 jtdm estate...they are different to the 'standard' Q4's. The taper out...these are straight. Does anyone have a part number or know of anywhere I can order then from please, part number etc...MOT due real soon and they're both cracked! I've...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have just found a great deal on used Eibach Pro kit. Serial numbers: FRONT - F1020001 Weight on front axle: 1060kg REAR - F1020002 Weight no rear axle: 1000kg The specific springs for the 147 have similar weight: Front axle - 1040kg Rear axle...
  19. 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...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Anyone know of an aftermarket supplier for these? MoT just identified I have a broken one and main dealer want an eye watering £148.19 EACH for them. It's apparently an unique part to the model, part number 50515197...
