  5. Replacing front upper arm?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I've got a front upper arm to replace - can anyone advise how far the front suspension needs to be dismantled to achieve this? I'm hoping it's only a question of splitting the upper ball joint and unbolting the upper arm - but is it also necessary to unbolt and drop the upper arm/strut top...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    To distract me from the post cam belt change noise problem (see other thread) i thought i'd sort out the upper wishbone on my 147 project. Thought i was doing well with all bolts out and upper ball joint separated but i just can't get the strut separated from the upper mount. I've left the...
