  5. 159 rear suspension advice

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    About 3 months ago the ride in my 159 (06, 2.4 with 18" wheels) became much harsher. The dealer had a look and could not find fault. I later noticed that it was lower in the arches in the back than the front and on inspection found that the offside tyre/arch gap was about 1/2" lower that the...

  7. noisy suspension help!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I had my front upper suspension arms and bushes renewed and all was fine until this evening. I have now noticed a very pronounced squeaking/creaking that seems to be coming from the antiroll bar predominantly on the drivers side. Anyone else had anything similar. Worst part is we are in the...

  10. GT - suspension and Q2 diff upgrade

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Earlier this year, I discovered that my recently purchased and still under warranty 2004 GT had suspension problems, even more than those mentioned in this forum at various times (see threads re "Why is GT suspension crashy"). The wheel arch to tyre gaps on my car were uneven (approximately 50mm...
  11. Rear suspension a bit soft?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    It's been a couple of weeks since the purchase of my GTV V6, and after sorting out a couple of minor niggles everything seems great and I'm loving the car. One thing does bother me though: the other day I fancied giving it a bit and upon cornering left out of a roundabout (not very hard at all)...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    hi i recently added a 164 to my collection. was going to take it to treat it to new suspension all round ? as i think the front shock bearings are worn (free play in front wheels occasional clonks) i notice that the 164 is equipped with self levelling suspension that runs off the steering pump...
  13. Missing suspension bolt!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Oh dear! I swapped out my left hand upper and lower wishbones the other day...what a pig of a job, don't do it unless you have too much time on your hands, are very handy with a spanner, and can do it somewhere other than the side of the road... Anyway, all was well until my car started...
  14. Audi A4 with suspension shock...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Just taken a drive in wifeys just delivered new A4. Anyone who has just had their fillings put back in following a drive in an old Audi A4 or A3 lately might be surprised to find that the new A4 actually has the capability to smooth out bumps. A first for Audis of that size I reckon. Bit...

  16. Knocking front suspension on new GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My car has developed a knock when going over speed bumps from the front drivers side suspension - its only 1000 miles old. I have always driven very slowly over speed bumps and don't recall hitting any potholes at any speed. Any ideas what could be causing this?
  17. Rear Suspension Crunch

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've had my '02 147 for a few months now and from day 1, it seemed to be a bit more than 'sensitive' going over speed humps etc. Normally, it's just me in the car and it drives fine and the suspension is silent. As soon as I have someone in the back or a few bags of shopping in the boot - I...
  18. Rumbling/thrumming sound on 147 - bearing, suspension or tyre?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all I have been getting a rumbling/thrumming sound on the RR wheel of my 147 for a few months. I'd originally thought it was tyre noise, then suspected a bearing was gone but now I'm not sure. I rotated the tyres on the weekend (putting the RR on the RF) and now the rumbling is coming from...
  19. Alfa 156 Sport Wagon bent suspension

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My wife recently had a car park incident. The car looked OK but I have since discovered that the drivers side trailing arm is considerably bent. As a result the osr wheel is about 1.5 inches forward of where it should be, touching the wheel arch lining. What, apart from the bent trailing arm is...
  20. Ready for suspension upgrade advice!

    Tuning & Upgrades
    I've had my 2.0 147 for 6 months or so now, and so far only the glove box handle has fallen off. Now is the time to start spending some of the 'Alfa Reliability Contingency Fund' I have put aside to sort out any of those issues italian cars seem to have. First on the list is suspension. The...
