Hi everyone Im about to replace the rear
shocks and springs on my brava
1.6 Trofeo can annyone recommend a good shockspring combo and keeping to standard height I was thinking either Monroe or KYB both seem reasonably priced on ebay Thanks for any help
I just got some new Blistine B4 rear shocks and some Kilen rear springs. Im very happy with them its a nice improvement over my old fairly rusty parts that where original to the car i think.
Hi yes I fitted Excel-Gs all round to my brava a few years ago they are good value and feel slightly firm or sporty (at least when you first fit them you notice). Im happy with them although I like trawling ebay to see if there are any bargain Sachs or Boge units as they are very good too. The ordinary bravas Bravos and Mareas all seem to take the same shocks unless they are diesels or 2 litre jobs.

Just wondering if anyone can help me with this. The bravos mot has expired (2 days before christmas ) and im just getting a few jobs done before the mot (little things like adjusting handbrake & changing the front panel that holds the radiator up). Now everything is done but im getting a creaking noise from the rear
drivers side suspension
wheel arch area. Ive had the car on the ramps and cant see anything
Sorry its a Bravo 1998 1.4 SX if that makes a difference
Lately i have been able to feel what at first seemed like a buckled rear
wheel at 60mph it shakes the car enough to feel it but not enough to be dangerous and at about 5-10mph you can really feel it its like one rear
wheel is going over a small bump in the road every revolution. Im going to get the car in the air today and have a quick look then go to a tyre place to see if they are balanced correctly or not if its neither of them what is it likely to be Bearing suspension
Hi guys I am about to start a repair on my JTD 105. There is a loud cracking noise from the rear suspension
nearside which I cant quite pinpoint even with the car on a ramp.If anyone has encountered this problem I would be glad of some advice. Has anyone tackled the job of replacing axle bushes on this model. If so I would like to know what I am letting myself in for assuming this is the problem.Thanks again
it is most likely due to play in a rubber bush
either rubber bush between subframe and body or rear arm pivot bush. Does the wheel sit straight or at an angle
Thanks for the info lads . The tyre on the side where the cracking comes from is wearing on the inside if I remember right. This I assume points to a problem somewhere. Thanks again
hi guys discovered bearing on nearside rear
arm has collapsed so a new arm priced ts at 2 places between 200 and 250 so think scrappers might be next best but no one round lancs seems to have a hgt so my question is does it have to be a hgt rear
arm or are some other models the same cheers
has to be a hgt i belive a friend had the same problem and he had to use a hgt im unsure if all the disk brake stuff are a straight swap onto a arm set up for drums (i imagine you need a backing plate ect).
I have recently bought a 2001 (y-reg) fiat brava
1.3 80sx and have noticed that when cornering to the right the back end slides out ever so slightly. On the motorway this is more apparent. Ive checked the tyre pressure on all wheels and they are all the same. I have a feeling the problem is the rear
Damper but id like to know for sure before i commit to buying a replacement. Would i have to buy a set

1.6 sx 100 2001. I just took her for an mot and it failed on one thing near side rear suspension
bump stop cone (the thing the bump stop holds on to). It has rotted away and not surprisingly as it is thin metal imagine a cup off the top of a metal thermos flask with the bump stop stuck to the bottom thats about it. Anyhow the mot guy was talking to his buddy saying it is structural and his mate
I got my 1996 1.4 brava
_SX from Austria from 15 years now i currently live in Romania i have this problem with my ride quality i think its way too rough so i decided to try and fix it somehow ive spend 3 hours at 3 different mechanics and the couldnt find a single problem in the back except the After-Market KYB Excel-G Shocks ive got on the car are so hard that makes the ride unbearable is it normal
that sound is NOT uncommon not too sure where you problem lies.. or each mechanic wouldve found it maybe go for softer rear suspension thopugh.. Charlie charlie
My experience with a brava (2001) is that KYB Excel gas dampers are quite firm but not excessive. Nearly all front end noises (especially clunking over bumps) are due to worn front wishbone bushes - also on Tipos and I guess Puntos. On my car I have changed these also drop links track rods track rod ends - all over time. Very common areas for wear and noises.... On my Tipo (1995) a lot of crashing

If its one thing i hate the most its not giving a car problem a proper diagnostic fiats are so complex that my problems could be caused by a lot of things i cant just start trowing parts at this car i need to make sure 100% that the parts im changing are the ones causing the problems and im saying that cause im a god damn student and as you can imagine i dont have lots of pennies in my pocket i came
Im contemplating doing the same with my 1.6 Multipla. I found a rear suspension arm bush kit for about &16320 on shop4parts. But not sure if Ill be able to get the old bushes out in situ. Also read that its best to renew both sides at once as otherwise you will notice uneven cornering as one bush is new & tight and the other old & sloppy. I believe the Multi shares many parts parts with the Bravobrava
Hi have fitted some Bilstien lowering suspension

Hi All My Bravo 10016v has 52K on it and has the original suspension
fitted (as far as I know...). The rear
dampers were replaced (leaky) about 8k miles ago and now I think the fronts may need doing too but I thought I would ask first - the front feels very crashy on bumpy surfaces and it hops about a little. I dont think it used to do this but any change would be gradual so Im not sure. Its always

How hard it is to replace a rear
Radius arm 1997 fiat
As the procedure is much the same on either car (Puntos wear out more often though) Remove centre cap for the hub nut and loosen nut (32mm) Jack the car remove wheel and remove all brake components Remove the hub (carefully) the drum backing plate handbrake cable and the brake hoses and pipes on the arm in question. Try to plug up the brake fluid as if let run dry it will ruin the master cylinder (which
Ever since i bought my Bravo the rear
wiper hadnt worked. And as i had sum spare time on friday i decided to have a look at it. so i took off the pannel in the boot and noticed that the washer tube had come out so i put it back in. but wen i tried to work the washer it still doesnt worker. the rear
wiper come on tho and the front washers come on. help please
a very very very common problem that is easily fixed. you can usually repair the wiper by stripping the motor down and greasing it but it may need replacing (scrapyard wiper motor is cheap). if the rear washer isnt working and you have reconnected the pipe (use glue) the problem is usualy a blocked non-return valve. the valve is in the engine bay behind the right hand suspension turret (when looking
Right i used to get a clonk from the nearside suspension
. Found it to be a nakard ball joint on the end of the lowerwish bone. The farside was replaced just before i bought the car. Then there was no clonking or anything unusual. Now there is a clonk returned (The side i just replaced the old wishbone). Sounds the same. I have looked from under the car and all the ball joints seem sound. Its only when
hmm.. if its the rear then it could be something in the rear drum break knoking about or maybe the exhaust banging on the car
Ill check tomrow for splits and any loose bits. Its deff not from the rear of the car. Ill tell ya how i get on although im not guessing ill find the prob
Got a set from my old car but the details for that were PCD 4 x 100mm (4 studs) Offset 35 -38 Wheel Nut Thread 12 x 1.5mm Wheel Nut Torque 76ftlbs (103 nm) So what do i need to do to make these fit the Bravo I am also in need of some front dampers. So what is the cheapest price I can get for a real decent set (prices for both 2 and 4 and or links which ever possible).
the PAS on the 1.8 and 2.0 model bravos has less assistance so it is much better and i stongly recommend you upgrade. i previously had a 1.6 and one of the things i hated most about it was the power steering (and the seats ) but the 1.82.0 steering doesnt feel half as scary. i havent actually fitted 147 seats all i did was take measurements to determine if it is possible. i know they will fit because
Someone over at Boo (Ash) put 147 front seats in his Bravo they needed some fabricationwelding. Not sure if he tried the rears or just didnt bother. Apparently 156 fronts go straight in no clue about the rears though.
Is this possible Is it a good bad idea to get used suspension
and put it on another car If it works will the suspension
lower my car Specifically the shock absorbers. Also which springs will i need
its not possible and even if it was it wouldnt do you any good. the mounting points are different at top of struts lengths are different front and rear hubs wont connect to shocks on front shocks wont connect to arms on rear it would be more difficult than a coupe brake conversion. get springs for your car and if you still arent satisfied then get some gas shocks too. personally i think a set of lowering
Does anyone know wether hgt springs will fit a bravo sx Reason being im putting the ride quality back to standardcant be doing with the hardness and banging of hardened lowered springs no moregetting old lol From what ive read in my bravo brochure the hgt was made lower and sportier lol so im thinking of getting those.
cheers for thati wasnt sure Reason i asked was a mate bought hgt 35mm lowering springs for his 1.8hlx and they didnt fit he asked me if i had hgt suspension and did i want them.As far as i know my car has standard suspension apart from having the 20v frrr disc conversion.
not sure if im posting in the right place. jus wanted to knw how difficult it is to change suspension
80sx cud i get away with jus doing the springs jus put a set of 16s on the car and it looks good but as u can see in my signature pic its a little high i was thinking maybe a 30 - 40 mm drop nothing to major.
the rear is very easy the front is also very easy if you dont have any seized bolts. use a haynes manual. replacing only the springs is fine if the shocks are still in good condition. a 30 to 40mm drop will be fine on 16s.
EDIT in that pic youve got a rear spring. i bet the avo website doesnt even mention the 1.2. the 1.2 uses the same springs and shocks and the 1.4 1.6 & 1.8. the only reason most manufacturers dont list the 1.2 is the 1.2 didnt exist at the time. companies that do list the 1.2 (very few do) show that the 1.2 kit is the same as the 1.4 1.6 & 1.8. some companies list the 1.8 seperately with the TD & 2.0 i dont know why.
