  1. Best hydraulic shocks and which springs to use

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I posted this reply originally in the thread about Vicks shocks but I think it'd be best to have its own since I have further questions. I've got an S4 and need to replace the springs and shocks. I'm considering either hydraulic versions from Vicks or the ones that I think are the same from...

    Dear alfa friends, after having my old alfetta in a barn for over 15 years, i finally got to the point of getting her back into shape. One of the tasks is to renew/upgrade the suspension. What type of springs, and dampers are you using? and how do they seem to ride? I would really appreciate...

    GT (1963-1977)

    Has anyone purchased and installed the International Auto Parts spring/swasy bar kit that, to quote them, "levels your car and maintain proper tire clearance by lowering it less than 1". Our springs are 15% stiffer, so they're perfect for both autocrossing and daily driving." I assume Koni...
