Hi all

I was wondering whether there are any posts on how to replace the front shocks on an Alfa 90 or Alfa 75 ( I have a 90 but I hear that they are virtually the same suspension system).

I am fairly technically minded, but is it a difficult job?

thanks in advance

If it just the shocks you are replacing, its a doddle! 2 bolts on the lower arm, and a nut up top! you will probably spend more time jacking the car up and removing the wheels!!

Thanks Alfaspence.

By the way, what does the oil vapour separator look like and where is it located?

thanks

Breather is the small black piece that connects to the inlet of the front left rocker cover - It then has a hose that runs to the black intake pipe between the AFM and throttle body.

Thanks Rookie and Alfaspence

Hear that the Breather needs to be periodically cleaned - that right? Any tricks to doing this?

Also, where are the oil pressure switches located on these as my OP gauge seems to be dead. Not sure if its the switch or gauge.

some links to pics of front shocks being would be most appreciated.

Sorry about so many questions - fairly new to the Alfa scene with my splendid 90 (my experience is the french stuff with a Pug 405 Mi16).
