SZ/RZ rear suspension mounts

Post by killaz »

Hello everybody!

I'm installing coilover pack in position of rear shocks in my Alfa 75. Are there any reinforcements required and/or how top mounts for rear suspension look in SZ/RZ setup?

Combination to install is revalved B46 + 6kg/mm spring.

Cheers!
:wink:

Well, I made some reinforcements and drove her on one track day. Everything went perfect, even improved my best lap.

What about the dedion? The SZ has reinforcements there it seems.

I've checked some pictures available online and haven't noticed any difference on DeDion mounts... :?

If you have some info or guidelines, it would be nice to share before I hit the floor like ricers do :lol:

Took some photos of my bro's SZ rear suspension. You can see the dedion is not just a slightly reinforced dedion. The strut tower is also not exactly the same.

Huh, these are really massive reinforcements on dedion and first picture I see from this angle.

Regarding strut tower... Is there additional metal profile tuck welded to chassis or something else? (I see aluminum sleeve on coilover that acts as upper stopping point)

Thank you guys, very much!
