Uk supplier for rear drop links ?

Post by Digritz » Mon Oct 01, 2012 9:22 pm

Hi all , I'm restoring an1986 gtv6 ... And need a pair of rear drop links with bushes. Ordered from performatk in the USA, but now he has gone quiet and won't respond to email or calls. So on the basis he is dead or a con man , I need a supplier for a pair or rear drop links ASAP . Can anyone recommend, and are they the same links as Alfa 75 ones ?
Thanks
Rob

There are two types - type with a single vertical bolt and type where the top bolt is horizontal and the bottom bolt vertical with a u shaped bracket (as per the picture below).

Not sure which type is per the 75 (had one but can't remember) my 83 gtv6 has vertical single bolt type.

You need to get the type that fits with your sway bar - horizontal or vertial hole?

I just got a version of these from International Auto Parts in US, not quite the same as the originals, but near enough. Highwood Alfa UK have the bushes but not the bolt/sleeve.
