  1. Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    I'm looking for one good castor arm clevis for my '72 GTV. The old one rusted into the castor arm and was beyond saving. I've circled the part in the attached image. It looks like Alfaholics is the only source for these and theirs is machined from billet and costs about $65. That seems kinda...

    Hi, Am about to replace major front suspension components (A-arms etc). Can I ask what grade of steel is OEM spec for the M8 and M10 bolts? 8.8 or 10.9?
  3. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi Alphanatics!! In my Spider 1750 of 1971 I 've installed a new pair of normal springs bought in Alfa Classic of England and a new pair of shock absorbers. Although the car hits the bump stops frequently in a relative small bump in the track. Did anyone face a similar problem?? What solution...
  4. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I have the suspension, engine, trans, etc. from a late 70s spider. What I would like to do is bolt all of that on to a duetto body. But are those parts compatible? From what I have seen, they are--the motor mounts and suspension parts look to be the same. But I wanted to ask the pros here in...

    My 79 Spider needs suspension bushings replaced. Opinions on what I should expect to pay for the job. I did see the thread on doing this myself but at my age (76) not sure I want to be under my car on jack stands.
  6. Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    I designed these stands to support the rear of the transaxle when the entire assembly is out of the car. The price is $75 for this stand. Includes two lasercut steel side plates, three aluminum stand offs, and six steel socket cap screws. You use the original mounting bolt from your car to...

    Just acquired an S3 Spider in really good shape, but the suspension needs some work. It's squeaky, creaky and a bit clunky. I'm guessing it could use a full refresh of bushing and ball joints. I have an appointment with Glenn at Oliveria Engineering in Berkley... for the end of September. Which...
  8. Giulia (2017-current)
    Hi there Alfisti ! This is my first post to the forum so be gentle... I’m hoping someone can help me with some sage advice on lowering my Giulia. I’ve just bought it new from McCarrolls in Sydney and love it to bits. But I think it sits a fraction high on its gorgeous wheels. I’ve cruised...

    I noticed a pop recently when turning the wheels to full lock/ right turns to the left. I checked and sure enough my outer tie rods seem with. It will have to wait until next payday. I've read some things that seem to indicate the car takes six. How can this be and where are they all located. Is...
  10. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Had 4-wheel tracking done on 164 today and they couldn't correctly adjust the rear tracking as limit reached on the adjustment. Assuming this is down to me not completely balancing the tie rod ends so one has 'bottomed out'; in my defence was trying to keep good clearance of adjustment bolts...
  11. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello everyone, This forum has been an incredible tool for learning about my Spider. I bought it in March 2019 and drove it nearly everyday until late September. The car wasn't in the best shape, but I still felt great on the road. The only real noticeable problem was the gearbox, grinding in...
  12. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, on-going topic, the long rear suspension bolts. One bolt I couldn't remove so removed the rear hub with strut and an arm attached. Angle ground the arm off, pausing to check heat transfer levels. The angle ground the strut off and the removed remaing exposed segements of the bolt. Despite...

    My winter project will be replacing the bushings on my 1979 Spider. My question what should I tackle first, front or rear suspension. I have a low frustration threshold, so which would be least frustrating.
  14. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Had this idea for removing these long bolts a while ago and today finally put it to the test. We are talking the 200mm M10 bolts that run through the bottom of the rear dampers and lateral arms - the ones that tend to sieze solid. The technique was simply as follows: While the car was jacked...
  15. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Has anyone replaced the front bushes of the front suspension A-arm? They are pressed in hard so not sure how best to get them out.
  16. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Does anyone know the metal spec for the 20cm bolts at the bottom of the rear suspension on 164s? (non Q4). Is it 8.8 or 10.9? I ask because the 20cm bolts I removed from the inner tie rod ends were grade 10.9 but that subframe had been previously replaced so is this the standard grade? Also...

    Building custom upper A arms for my Dio Tipo Alfa project. Need to find a different upper BJ so that it will be adjustable for length. The common trick is to use tie-rod ends. Do NOT want to use Heim ends. But to do that I need to find dimensions for the taper. I've tried to measure but it's...
