  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm excited to get back to driving our 147 that we bought last April as we are moving to Sicily presently. It's in overall good condition with 158k on it. The shocks are still ok on it, but as it's going to be our daily I'd like it to have a bit better ride. Luckily it doesn't make any knocking...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Everyone, I am looking at suspension replacement options as I want to raise the car slightly (was lowered badly by previous owner) and have settled on the eibach springs from Squadra Sportiva (Alfa Tuning & Fanartikel Shop). However, there seem to be 2 good options for damping. As I've seen...
  3. Alfa MiTo
    Hello everyone, We've decided to build a race car from our MiTo 1.4 TBi 114kw for a hillclimb discipline. Right now we're consulting new suspension, however I would like to ask you whether it is possible to find somewhere suspension manufacturer's figures for unsprung mass or we will have to...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've decided my 2.2 SW is having "the works" this summer and would appreciate some recommendations on a new exhaust and suspension set up! I'd like to let the car sound a little more exciting without sounding too boy racer-ish. I'd love the car to sound a bit more raspy and a little more bass...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello everyone! I was enjoying my Italian beauty until recently. It developed a clunking sound at the front end and I thought "well Control arms it is then". But its strange. When I hit a pothole they clunk. When I hit a speed bump they dont. Every obstacle that makes the suspension go UPWARDS...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Evening folks, well today I was given the fantastic news by the MOT tester that the front bushes on my front lower arms are destroyed and has cheekily quoted in the region of £900 to replace. I politely refused to have him change them, went and bought the wishbones myself for £150 total from...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum. I own a Mito QV, 2010. I bought the car last month and I knew it had the Bilstein b14 suspension. The problem is that I don't have the DNA active anymore. I know that I need to buy the deactivation kit. (this) Now, I want to order the product but I have...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I love this car, got it from an owner that did not care for it really and have spent blood and sweat getting it running nicely. Thing is i live in london, and crystal palace there are a lot of potholes and speed bumps. I find going over these speed bumps and hitting potholes (when i cant avoid...
  11. Alfa MiTo
    After noticing the front right wheel was sat a good 20mm further back in the arches than the left on my new to me Cloverleaf, I took the wishbone off and found it very bent! Luckily the chassis looked good and straight, as did the subframe (pothole?) So I bought a wishbone from Ultimate Styling...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & 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...
  16. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hello, I was wondering is there any coilovers or adjustable suspension that would fit my 145? I mean from any other model or even make..? Like vw golf 4 or something like that
  17. South Africa
    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
  18. 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...
  19. Alfa GTA
    Hi everyone Looking at putting together another rear suspension overhaul group buy, if anyone is interested can you please let me know, will have to see if its still viable. The kit consists of all 4 genuine Alfa transverse arms (including the 2 x GTA specific arms with stiffer bush material)...
  20. 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...
