Still looking to replace my 156 sport pack shocks with like for like OEM shocks, but postage to here is a killer. Does anyone know who the OEM shocks for a 156 2.0 SP3 2001 are done by? Magneti Marelli or someone else?
I suppose money is the problem, but I would buy a set of Koni Sport Adjustables. Will work with standard or lowered cars and you will be able to get a ride that is better than the original as well as improved handing!!!.
Just to muddy this one, I think that non sportpack cars handle and ride better than sportpack ones.
Sure, I think every one will agree about the ride, but I still think that non sportpack handles better. The sportpack springs are too hard and dampers too weak. IMHO, and the non sportpack dampers seem to cope with the non sportpack springs better.
Beware Magnetti Marelli stuff, though. They have a very rationalised range so that few part numbers fit many applications- often with less than ideal handling resulting.
