Man, I saw a set which were just thrown out, about a year ago or so. Could have had all for free. I do know of a "as new" set, including rear springs, for an 89 but you can't have them, lol. Sorry.

Torsion bar thickness

Hi Chris

Torsion bar thickness is measured in the middle of the bar or anywhere except the splined area. The splined area is always the same.

I've got a set of Milano torsion bars but I assume shipping to Italy is a deal breaker. PM if you are interested.

that's what I thought, measure in the middle. Mine are 16mm believe it or not and I'm looking for a set of thicker ones but not so thick as to really mess up the car as it is very light (2150lbs) with it's lil 4 banger. It's a hoot to drive so at this point its just an idea. It gets his new tires and wheels this week and tho "only 14's" will no doubt be a vast improvement over the 13's and the Michelin MVX that I believe are original to the car. I went with the max size the car was originally fitted with. In other words, the size the title says is the max allowable for the car as per Alfa engineers.

I will send a PM tho cause they could be shipped to my son and he can get them to me. ciao, jc

I wonder what the comparative weights are for the drive trains, ie, relative front/rear stiffness?
