Wheel Alignment 159 Ti
« on: August 08, 2014, 07:58:52 PM »
Hello everyone, new to forum. I was wondering if anyone would recommend someone who can do a proper wheel alignment on a 159 Ti in Sydney? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have been to a number of places but they don't seem to able to get it right. Tyre's are wearing every 15k. Any one else have a problem with their wheel alignment 159 Ti?
Cheers
David

From what i have been told, hit a kerb or pothole and the subframe can move, and give it a normal wheel alignment and it will be crabbing down the road.
You need to go back to an Alfa Romeo Dealer or Independant Alfa Romeo Service Provider and they need to reset the subframe on the body so that it is straight and not on the piss.
Once that is done the wheel alignment can be carried out normally.
The 159 is a heavy car and is quite hard on tyres, Colin.

Its not that serious, never seen it done, but heard that the subframe bolts are loosened and with a jig the subframe lined up with the body and the bolts tightened, anyone else had this done?, Colin.

Thanks for your advice Colin. A wheel alignment specialist advised he believes maybe damaged upright or hub?? rear right. Can anyone recommend anyone in Sydney?

You would be best to go to a Alfa Romeo Dealer or Independant Service provider, as you may need Alfa Romeo tools and knowledge to fix it.
Google Alfa Romeo in Sydney and look on the Alfa Romeo owners club website, to find their sponsors page, Colin.
