I have been searching everywhere, but I can't seem to find how I can determine if my Alfa 156 1.9 JTD of 1998 has the sport or the standard suspension.
I need to replace the rear shock absorbers urgently, and so I need to know which ones to buy...
Can anybody help me with this?

Thank you,

Phaedra

I don't think there's a massive difference.

A Veloce would be more sporty

If it has a carbon trim interior, its probably a veloce

Thanks for the reply.
Meanwhile, I've struggled through the disassembly of the rear suspension, and found a part number on the shock absorber. In my case, it was a standard suspension.
To my shock (no pun intended) I discovered that the lower spring support dish had rotten through...about half of the circumference was rotten.
Waiting for the replacement shocks to start assembling the whole again.
