  1. Anyone with pics of S4 with standard ride height?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello AlfaBB, I'm trying to decide on whether to buy new springs that are 1" lowering (and slightly stiffer than stock- not sport springs but Vick's lowering springs) or the standard/stock height springs. I'll be using them with standard style hydraulic shocks. I'd like a good ride/handling...
  2. 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...
  3. Spider wheels & springs?

    Suspension, Steering, Brakes, Wheels & Tires
    Bought another Spider today. Came with 14" Campy wheels but I do not know the model. Anyone know what they are, and possible value as I think I am going to put my gold Ronal basket-weave's on instead. I tried to search the wheel thread but most of the pics there are dead. I also have a set...
  4. How do I decide which springs to buy?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    The springs on my S4 need to be replaced - the left side is 1 1/2 inches lower than the right side. The goal is to have a car that is fun to drive but recognizes that roads have dips, bumps, cracks, and holes. It appears that a lot of springs offered are designed for racing and "fast street"...
  5. Alfetta GT 1.8 suspension

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    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...
  6. Berlina Lift Kit

    Sedan (1962-1977)
    I'm getting close to finishing my wiper / washer project and looking forward to a more "fun" project for the next. I'd like to use the Berlina more this summer for fun trips, so raising the front then getting an alignment is top on my list. Here's how she sits now: After checking...

  9. Alfa GTV Springs & Sway Bars

    AONE - Alfa Romeo Owners of New England
    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...
  10. Rebound straps with sports springs

    Suspension, Steering, Brakes, Wheels & Tires
    Apologies if this is a noob question, but I'm already waist-deep in the project. The car is an '82 Spider. I've replaced my back right springs and shocks with Vick Autosports performance springs and Koni yellow shocks. The springs slightly lower the car. Now, with my new rebound straps...

  12. 1978 Alfetta GTV Suspension setup?

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Hello, I recently acquired a '78 alfetta gtv. The initial driving experience was great, but I did notice a bit of body sway or roll when taking corners. The car is riding on koni shocks, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for tuning the suspension? Also, will GTV6 springs fit on...
