  1. Door handle torsion spring

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Does anyone know a supplier of small torsion springs? I need a replacement for the interior drivers door handle of my '52 plate GTV. The local Alfa dealer was helpful enough but could only supply the spring when it was attached to the entire door card at a cost of £603! I'm currently scouring...
  2. Strut Brace / Torsion Bar 50903141

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does any one know if the Torsion bar / Strut Brace Part No. 50903141 is still available, tried a few dealers but no luck - I must admit the local stealer was a touch clueless. Failing that any recommendations for equivalents or does any out there have one for sale. Cheers Jon

  6. Anyone fitted a torsion bar to a Spider?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    As above really. Resources are limited but I did read somewhere that fitting a torsion bar to the Spider reduces scuttle shake and sharpens up steering responses. Has anyone got any experiences with torsion bars?

  13. Creaking torsion bars!

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    The front end of my 75 TS seems really creaky at the front. Very noticeable if in traffic or travelling at low speeds. Has anyone else experienced this. I've been told to drill and plug the torsion bars with a grease nipple and pack full of grease due to the bushes drying out! Any (cheap)...
  14. Torsion Bar Adjustment

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Well I have spoken to a few Alfa places down here and they don't really have much of an idea about how to adjust it. I asked one if they could also adjust the Konis to suit to which he replied "What you want them on full?". No I want them adjusted to suit obviously. So this lead me to think...
  15. Torsion bar...

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Anyone had any experience of after market torsion bars?! Eibach do one for the front end on a 146 and is supposed to dramatically reduce roll... I really don't want to be lowering and stiffening the springs, so it seems a good idea... in theory! I figure a strut brace across the top wouldn't...
