Alfaholics Lightweight Spring Pan
£75.00 – £150.00 GBP (ex vat)
SUS102/1 | SUS102/P
- Alfaholics production.
- Lightening holes are laser cut for improved accuracy and consistency.
- Lower pan holes swage-punched to increase the strength and rigidity beyond that of a standard pan.
- Finished in high quality black powder coating.
We recommend combining these pans with our FIA 2 1/4″ front spring conversion for maximum weight saving – 7.2KG total with this combination.
They are pre-drilled to take our FIA 2 1/4″ conversion.

60% lighter than standard spring set up. Designed using CAD, this kit allows the use of 2 ¼ inch springs with standard Alfa spring pans. This makes it ideal for road and trackday cars looking to reduce unsprung weight. It also complies with FIA regulations as it retains the original spring mounting points, making it the perfect Appendix K front suspension upgrade. Kit includes all aluminium parts required for both sides of the car, two 5mm spacer rings allowing ride height to be shimmed accurately and all fitting bolts

Full race 2 1/4″ small spring kit designed to be used on all models of 105 series Alfas. Designed using CAD & CAM this spring kit does not require the use of a spring pan or a heavy full size Alfa style spring. This constitutes a massive weight saving (4.2KG per corner!). It bolts directly to the outer spring pan holes on the standard wishbone. It features a fully adjustable threaded spring platform allowing the front ride height to be altered quickly and easily, without removing the spring. This also allows a much finer and more accurate control when corner weighting the car, essential for shaving the last few tenths off lap times and for improving driveability. This gives all the benefits of a coil over unit without any of the structural problems of mounting a coil-over unit to the inner wing. The pivot pin design has recently been updated to include the front anti-roll bar fixing; thus our rose jointed anti-roll bar drop link directly fits this pivot pin; this results in further weight saving and improved simplicity of design. The mounts come finished in hard anodizing. Notes – Priced per kit but supplied without springs although we can supply these if required. Please call to discuss the optimum spring rate and length. You also have the option to upgrade to titanium pivot pins which results in a further weight saving of 1KG.

This beautifully CNC machined kit replaces the original bottom ball joints fitted to your 105 series Alfa Romeo, to optimise the front suspension geometry of all 105/115 series cars. These geometry improvements make the car far easier and more predictable to drive on the limit, as well as being faster. The retention of original wishbones allows the kit to be used in more tightly regulated race series (such as SVRA) where original suspension arms must be retained, but it also makes this kit perfect for both fast road and trackday 105 Series cars. This kit is fully compatible with both our FIA 2 ¼” kit which retains springs pans and our full race adjustable ride height kit which removes them. The kit increases castor by being offset forwards and also corrects the front rollcentre back above ground level, in so doing increasing the roll-on camber at the same time. These significant problems of all 105 series Alfas with standard geometry make lowered cars far harder and slower to drive than they should be. A typical method of reducing the camber and castor problems with standard geometry is to start with more static camber, but this itself has 2 major problems; reduced footprint for braking but more significantly, increased nervousness, particularly on uneven and cambered surfaces. The increased roll-on camber and castor provided by this kit allow a reduced level of static camber to be set, vastly improving the drivability of dual-purpose road and track cars. This Alfaholics kit is supplied with rose jointed outer track rods with specially pre-machined pins that remove bumpsteer completely. No special setup equipment it required! The complete eradication of bumpsteer makes the car far easier and more enjoyable to drive, as the steering wheel no longer kicks around in your hands, when the suspension moves up and down over bumps and under braking. Also included are a pair of ‘shock extender pins’ (for use with Koni or Bilstein shocks) which reset the travel of the shock absorber back into the middle of its travel, just as our ‘Shock Turret Extenders’ do for the rear suspension. Our aluminium adjustable front dampers do not need these extender pins. All parts are CNC machined to the very highest standards and then plated. All rose joints and bearings are premium quality PTFE lined self lubricating items, whilst the outer trackrods are finished in premium black powder coating.

Exclusively manufactured for Alfaholics by a leading UK race damper specialist. These dampers have been in development for many months; firstly with rigorous bench dyno testing to set the valving range and bump and rebound characteristics. Followed by thorough fast road testing and culminating in a 3 day test at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. The Nordschleife has become THE development ground for all the major car manufacturers. With its array of both slow & fast bends, varying gradient, surfaces and camber changes spread over a 13 mile lap, it really is the ultimate testing ground. Our extensive experience at the Ring with 105 Series Alfas would make this the ultimate development programme for our dampers.Bilstein dampers are OK up to a point for trackday and mild race use, but we have found them to have fundamentally flawed characteristics. This means that body control & direction change is compromised on circuit, whilst road ride quality is also not optimal. The damper valving data we have acquired over the last 5 years whilst running our Alfaholics 2.0 Sprint GT racer on F1 spec dampers across a range of historic, semi-slick and full slick tyres, from street to F1 circuits, has been collated and applied to these new Alfaholics dampers. This means that whatever the application of your car, be it trackday, historic race, or modern tyre racing, these Alfaholics adjustable dampers can be adjusted to the perfect setting for your application.They feature specially machined fittings, enabling standard fitment for both the front and the rear of the car, with the added benefit of the front using a spherical bearing for its lower mount giving extra accuracy and durability. The rear has been designed to allow the spring to be damper mounted with threaded platforms to enable accurate cornerweighing for race cars. Alternatively the original chassis spring seating can be used if coil over is not permitted in your race series.The adjuster knob is a CNC machined billet aluminium item with positive ‘clicks’ offering excellent ease and accuracy of adjustment. We have designed these adjusters to be mounted at the base of the dampers, as top mounted adjusters are extremely difficult to reach on these cars.Testing at the Nurburgring proved that the new dampers radically improve turn in and composure during fast direction changes. The car remained far more settled over kerbs providing greater confidence on the limit and therefore higher cornering speeds. A wet and very greasy morning session showed that being able to soften the rear dampers below Bilstein settings, vastly improved turn in and mid corner speed and made the car far easier to drive on the limit. Speeds that previously with Bilsteins would have led to an accident were shrugged off corner after corner with ease! The other key objective we were looking to achieve was an improved ride quality on the road, with the dampers set in the softer positions. This was tested and adjusted during the 1000 mile round trip to the Ring. The results were fantastic, on their softest setting the ride quality was remarkable, nearly comparable to our fabled fast Road Kit, even with mild race springs!In their stiffest positions they give a range of settings perfect for slick shod race cars with adjustment allowing for a differing stiff spring rates, circuit types and driver preferences. As the shocks are adjusted softer they give adjustment to suit settings for semi slicks, lightweight GTA race settings, historic tyres settings, wet weather settings down to the softest settings which provide beautifully compliant ride for trackday cars on the road. These Alfaholics shock absorbers represent the ultimate damper solution for all trackday, rally or full race 105s!Priced per shock, springs sold separately.
