  1. Suspension alignment recommendations

    Republic of Ireland
    Hi folks, Would anybody be able to recommend somewhere to get a 4 wheel alignment done on my GT in the Wicklow/Dublin area? I have already been to three different "professionals" only to be told the rear is miles out and cannot be adjusted, which is nonsense. Any recommendations for somebody...
  2. Cheap suspension arms packages

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all Previously I've been sold on using either meyle or lemforder suspension components but I notice there are front and rear sets for the GT which are pretty cheap, ~£250 for the full car set (plus hub bushes)...

  5. 2.0 Twin Spark Ground Clearance Issues

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just this weekend I picked up an absolute dream of a GTV: a beautiful red 2.0 Twin Spark with a mint interior, well serviced engine, and all working electronics! She's been a dream to drive... but the ground clearance is driving me insane. I live in Malta where the roads are subpar, and the...
  6. Suspension and Brakes

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After a long absence, I have returned to you guys to finally finish off all of Arya's running gear, with the grit, determination and the budget! I am going to be doing pads and discs all around it's only an extra £10 all in for brembos so that's a no brainer, but with regard to the pads should...
  7. Major rear suspension issue

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm hoping that someone can help. The rear offside suspension on my 2001 3.0L Spider squeaks like mad. Going over a matchstick is enough to make it squeak. It really is undrivable. Whilst I was away on holiday I gave it to my tame mechanic who I have been using for 25-30 years now and who has...
  8. 156 Rear Suspension Rattle - Solved?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening all, Quite a while ago, I posted some issues that I'd had with the suspension on my 1.9 JTD. Basically, I upgraded everything on the front and rear suspension, including all new fixings, and to be honest I've never been happy with it. I bought the car on a whim on 100,000 miles, it...
  9. Alfa Romeo 156 sports suspension

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello fellow Alfisti, As my Alfa Romeo 156 1.9 JTD 16v is 15 years old, I am seriously thinking about buying new suspension. I have already read many topics about the possible combinations, and I have narrowed my selection down to these two items, as the Bilstein B6 is no longer available...
  10. Suspension knock - but where from?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi I need some help with my Guilietta. It has developed a quite loud knocking sound from i believe the front right wheel - the sound is coming when the front right wheel goes over imperfections in the road, but it seems like the sound is coming from the right foot well. I have recently replaced...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    What do you reckon to this heath robinson approach to water getting in the rear pot? Ebay aluminium checkerplate and epoxy.
  12. suspension upgrade

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, due to rattling and squeaking suspension I'm thinking of upgrading.I have a 156 2.4 jtd 20v sw so as the gta suspension is compatible would this be a worth while upgrade? I was thinking gta shocks and roll bars with new eibach springs and polybushes. I'm sure the roll bars would be an...
  13. Giulia possible suspension squeak?

    Alfa Giulia
    I seem to be getting a squeak from the rear of my car, it can definitely be heard at low speed braking, seems to sound like it's coming from the suspension but wondering if anybody else has had the same problem? When the car is cold it can't be heard but when it's warmed up it's definitely...
  14. Help me identify suspension noise

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, It's a suspension noise thing - but in the back of my 147. Have been trying to fix it for ages now and I have yet again hit a solid wall, so some ideas will be much appreciated. Happens on speed bumps primarily. Happens only on the move. I can shake the car vigorously while stationary...
  15. Subframe and rear suspension rebuild.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Well finally I've managed to pick up a reasonably priced front subframe and rear suspension for rebuild. My plan is to get it all stripped down and blasted, repaint and rustproof it all and then swap them for the ones currently fitted. I'll detail the work as it progresses in my modifications...

  17. Slightly Better Suspension Set for Alfa 159 1.9 JTdm

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I know this topic has been written before. But I don't want like 3cm lowering. I need to change my suspension and springs because they are old and soft. Maybe I will only renew them, but some of my friend told me go for TI package, and maybe Eibach Anti-Roll Bar. And If you know the part...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Front suspension creaks, any ideas what it;s likely to be? I'm assuming a bush, just wondered if it;s a common fault. Car's done 160k but it's been creaking for ages. :rotate:
  19. Moog Suspension top arms

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just a note, if anyone decides to use General Moog upper suspension arms, be aware they last about 15,000 miles only, so paying the extra for them is kinda a waste. Trying TRW next. ??

    Alfa Giulietta
    2012 Giulietta 170 TCT Hi, I have noises coming from the suspension area when i hit a pot hole or go on uneven roads? I replaced the bushes on lower arms which solved some of the problem but the noise still remains? Any reason why it happens? Thank you
