  2. Tail gate gas struts

    Alfa Giulietta
    My car has been off the road for 11 days due to a gear linkage failure. Fitted the new part tonight and went to the shops. When I tried to open the boot it's like both gas struts have lost their charge! Could this be due to the recent hot weather, checked the bonnet (hood for our north American...
  3. GTA 156SW anti-roll bars and struts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a front and rear anti roll bar and links from my 156GTA. Front bar has new D bushes, but they aren't powerflex type. Also I have the original type GTA springs/dampers all in good working order. I think the rear springs/dampers may only be suitable to fit the Sportwagon, not sure. These...
  4. 946 Spider gas struts

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I recently replaced the 2 lots of gas struts in the Spider roof mechanism from replacements from SGS, and that now works much better. However next I would like to replace the gas struts that open the roof enclosure and also the boot lid struts. Has anyone found good suppliers for these struts...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    What are you guys fitting these days? I have a 147 GTA and both front and rear need replacing. I've found some OEM bonnet stays on partsworld https://www.partsworld-uk.com/collections/alfa-romeo-147-spare-parts/products/bonnet-stay-strut-147-gt and some on the sgs-engineering website...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Id like to upgrade the gas dampers for the bonnet and rear hatch to carbon fibre ones. Anyone know if the stock Giulietta are a standard size used by other vehicle's/models etc as i'm having great difficulty finding out. There's plenty on the market for Subaru, Mazda, Toyota etc so was hoping...
  7. Boot gas struts on 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    G'day all. One of the boot struts on my 1999 Alfa 156 has broken. Looking for a replacement, almost every seller makes a distinction between boots with and without a spoiler. The indicated original part numbers in various sites are: 60651067 without spoiler 60657685 with spoiler My car has...
  8. New struts - advise please

    Alfa Giulietta
    My 2011 2.0 Veloce had an Mot advisory for a slightly leaking rear shock. It's done 71k miles and the ride is noticeably worse than it was when I bought the car with 28k 4 years ago (although this is partly due to the front tyres needing replacing soon). Basically I'm looking at replacing all...

  10. Gas struts for boot with spoiler

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm trying to source any recommendations dedicated struts for my boot as I'm sick of getting bashed in the head everyone I go to get something out my boot. I've tried a standard new set but they don't support the weight of the spoiler. Has anyone dealt with this previously.

  13. Alfa GT 2006 Boot Struts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, After 3 days with my new GT I've noticed a knocking at he rear. I've read all the tailgate threads and have tried everything, winding the stoppers in and out, putting Velcro tabs where they sit on the boot sill, took the shelf out wasn't that and emptied the toolkit and emptied the...
  14. Do 147/156 share the same shock absorber struts?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys as questioned above, my rear shocks have had it, i'm comparing prices at the moment and want to know if it's possible to install the struts off a 156 onto my 147. I've searched for the question already but I didn't find a clear answer. Correct me if I didn't look hard enough ;)
  15. Metal ended boot struts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Getting a bit bored of buying new boot struts for my 03 156 saloon. Sooner or later the plastic sockets at the ends always seem to crack. I seem to remember reading somewhere that you could get ones with metal sockets but have never managed to track them down - can anyone point me in the right...

  17. GT boot struts, how powerful are they?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    How powerful should the GT boot struts be? My boot stays open fine but when I release the boot, the boot stays in position to be lifter manually. It seems to me like it might lift a little by itself but only because I am trying to get my fingers in the gap just under the boot (pretty much none...

  20. 156 SW boot struts question

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've taken both struts off the wagon - as between them they can't keep it suspended. No 1 - I can push in a way, and it returns. No 2 - I cannot push in at all. Which is the goosed one? I am sorta assuming No 1 but accept my logic could be very flawed. Any advice most welcome. Thanks Steve
