  1. Rear suspension knocking

    Alfa Giulia
    My MY18 Veloce has developed a knocking from the driverside rear suspension when going over bumps. Have had a look (as much as I can without being on a ramp) for a broken spring but can't see anything obvious. Need to get it into the garage for its 3rd year service anyway but anyone else had...
  2. 156 V6 SW Coilovers

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I was having a look at the suspension on my 156 SW and the currently fitted Koni shocks are looking in a sorry state now. Still functional but I want to replace them before they fail. There are a number of decent looking coilover kits out there from Bilstein, Koni, V-Maxx, AP, Eibach and KW to...
  3. SBK - Lost my dynamic modes

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys, Wondering if somebody can help me out here.. We have an SBK mito, basically just the 170 QV, and around 6 months ago we put it on stance coilovers, not realising it had adaptive suspension, so in doing so we lost the modes. We were then advised to get some modules which supposedly solve...
  4. Front suspension squeak

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, My Alfa Romeo 159 saloon has developed a squeak on the front right in the area of the suspension. I have replaced the top mounts, upper and lower arms and now the shocks but the squeak still hasn’t gone away. The anti roll bar links are in good condition as that was my next idea. Has...

  7. Suspension question

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all! I have a question about the front suspension for an Alfa 147 1.6 TS: Went for a check-up to my mechanic,and turns out that the nearside upper wishbone has a minor play in it. He said there's nothing to worry,but I want to change it. My question is, would it be better to buy an...

  9. 147 suspension upgrade

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi guys, long time lurker, but new 147 owner. :) 1.9 8v, pre-facelift. I have been reading around on what it takes to have a good handling 147. As the car did not cost all that much to me, I do not really want to spend it's price again on suspension.. But I still would like to have a good...

  12. Creaky suspension worry

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I realise how common this is and theres normally an easy fix which I'm going to try this weekend. (Wheels off, spray bushes with silicone). The upper fronts are relatively new, as are the drop links but the reason for my post is that its started creaking specifically after I went round a...
  13. V6 Suspension Combinations

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Loads of threads already - I know, but hopefully someone can help me out with a set up that worked well for them. Has anyone fitted the springs in the Alfaholics handling kit? If so how did they differ from OEM...
  14. Rolling restoration and suspension set up of 2.0 TS

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I in a way downgraded from 2001 model 3.0 24V with Q2 fairly good documentation and in my ownership for 10 years to a 1998 mod GTV 2.0 TS with 178.000 km and two stamps in the service history!

  15. Suspension Bushings

    Alfa Giulietta
    I've just checked my rear left tyre to find that the inside is heavily worn in comparison to the rear right tyre. This was an advisory on the MOT a year ago, but 'magically' disappeared on the MOT done just before I purchased it. Has anyone had any experience replacing rear control arms...

  17. Spider suspension

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have just imported a 2009 3.2 l V6 auto Spider from Japan and apart from the hood flap motors not working (I have spare ones), the suspension seems rather harsh. Comparing with a previous 2.2 selespeed Spider I owned, it seems to notice every bump on the tarmac of which there are many on NZ...
  18. Suspension & seized bolts

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This autumn, I'll be doing a suspension overhaul on my 156. I have more or less decided on the suspension setup I want, but what can I expect for stuck bolts? - Front pinch bolt, I know - Rear lower strut bolt? Last time I went to get my car aligned, the rear cam/toe bolts was more or less...

  20. Front suspension - splitting fork from damper?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I'm attempting to replace the front dampers on my 166. The initial dis-assembly was straightforward enough, but I'm stuck on removing the bolt that clamps the damper into the bottom fork. The nut comes off fine, but the bolt itself won't even turn (step 4 in the image below). I've split the...
