  1. Stiffer ARBs - yay or ney?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm considering fitting/having fitted some stiffer ARBs to make the car less rolypoly in the corners on my 159 2.4 SW. I guess the obvious is a set of eibachs which seem to be the ubiquitous upgrade option. Does anybody have any feedback or useful experiences with these/others/this sort of...
  2. Stiffer chasis 147 or 156

    Alfa GTA
    So most owners recommend Eibach anti roll bars for the 156, to improve the rigidity of the car. Do 147,s also need them or not so much, as maybe the car was stiffer from the outset?
  3. Stiffer ARB'S for Giulietta

    Alfa Giulietta
    Since a few weeks I am the proud owner of a Giulietta QV. It has H&R springs and standard shocks, running on 17". It drives good but I am convinced the turn-in could be improved stil, sharpened up. On my other car (156 GTA) I had Eibach ARB's installed last year and that greatly improved the...
  4. GTV 3.0 stiffer ARB's

    South Africa
    So I don't like the GTV's body roll on high speed corners. From what I've read, the front ARB is actually thinner than the 2.0's (some say a 155 and Fiat Coupe's bars are thicker up front than the V6 and the rear is also a joke. Anyone here upgrade their ARB's without breaking the bank?
  5. Poly bushes and stiffer ARB's...

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Has anyone done this to a GT or 156 etc?? A search isn't returning much info. Basically I've started getting some squeeking and slight knocking etc from the front and a recent service tells me it's the bushes. I don't fancy buying new ones from Alfa and then replace them again in less than two...
  6. Stiffer Shock Absorbers & Tarox Brakes

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi all, 145 1.4 T.Spark 1999 and no ABS 2 questions, first suspension: Does anyone have info regarding the standard shocks, about their stiffness? I would like to have shocks like Monroe Sensatrac, which should be stiff as original shocks during normal circumstances and more stiffer if...
