  1. 156 transverse arms

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I have had a WAH-WAH noise at speeds between 50 and 60 on certain road surfaces and a knocking from the rear at low speeds (worse when cold). Jacked up R/N/S and checked wheel at quarter to three and replicated the noise as coming from the rear transverse arm, inner bush/bolt, where it...
  2. Rear transverse arms

    Alfa GTA
    Hi all, Have been patiently buying the required parts to replace all of the rear suspension on my Gta. The rear arms are sorted and have recently purchased a front arm, part number 60676173.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have the usual tyre wear problem on the inner walls front and back, I've had a lot of suspension work done new bushes, arb, top and bottom arms. Anyway digressing a little, I drove the car for a four wheel alignment and all was good until the car was up in the air. I was told the back end is...
  5. Transverse Arms - Genuine vs Aftermarket

    Alfa GTA
    In the ongoing battle this rear suspension swap is giving me, I'm considering cutting the bolts that go through the bottom of the damper. The parts are all original and I'm thinking I'll spend longer trying to get the cut bolts out the transverse arms than I would by dropping the rear subframe...

  10. Transverse arm rear 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello :) I'm going to get the camber adjusted and the bolts at the inner transverse arm are rusted out stuck rock solid. I'm going to replace both arms as I'm already on it, but where can I order the bolts? Can't seem to find them anywhere. Have marked them in blue in the attached image...
  11. Transverse arm rear bush removal

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all - have started refurbing some suspension parts ready to refresh my suspension and have hit a sticking point - the transverse arm bushes... The middle ones came out easily with a dose of blowtorch but the bushes at each end of the transverse arm are another matter entirely. They appear to...
  12. Transverse & Rear Trailing Arm Bushes 156 ?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hello, having replaced my rear tyres due to inner worn edges i have come to the conclusion it is down to either one of these suspension components, i might sound dumb but the trailing arm is the curved arm which connects down to the rear hub ?, and the transverse arms are the straight ones with...
  13. Rear transverse arm failed and flat tyre - very odd.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My son and wife were driving home last night at about 45mph driving in a straight line on good quality town dual carriage way. First thing my son noticed was car feeling odd at the rear just like a flat tyre. Sure enough off side rear flat. Pulled around the corner and changed the tyre. Now the...
  14. Rear transverse arms - UPGRADE

    I have decided to share my experience with manufacturing new rear arms for our GTAs. We decided to do so together with Gotcha after some initial thoughts to replace only bushes on OEM "paper clips". The inspiration came from ZEATEK product Alfa » 156 » Suspension Tuning » Bagerste Strberarme...

  16. 156 GTA Transverse Arms

    Alfa GTA
    I'm having a little trouble getting hold of some of the transverse arms for the GTA, the ones in front of the rear subframe. I've tried a few places including EB Spares now, and i keep getting told all those arms are the same for all 156 models, but on double checking (after i provide...
  17. Transverse / trailing arms...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Am gonna blow some dosh on suspension components (wishbones, links & front ARB already ordered) & am wondering if I replace the above arms while I'm at it? :confused: What's the consensus? :D Also, can't seem to find a rear ARB - should I just re-bush the old one?
  18. Transverse arms ... that was a pig of a job ....

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    OK, the tyre wear on the rear has been odd for a long time. The inner edges wear much quicker that the middle or outer edges, and the tryes only last 12-14,000 miles. So I decided that it was probably time that the transverse arms needed replacing (these are the pressed steel arms running from...
