I supplied them with Centerline's front end rebuild kit with the adjustable upper control arms.
Between parts and labor, I spent about $1500 but it was well worth it.
I also added Centerline's sport coils which lowered the car an inch and made it handle better.
Another secret I found was the previous owner had hung the
fuel pump right over the rear exhaust arch with a zip tie!
Anyway, keep us posted on your progress!

Good morning Clark,

What was your decision process for the suspension work? For example, I see the Alfaholics Fast Road Suspension Rebuild Package Stage 1 set, how does that compared to centerline?
