156 Sportwagon Springs for FSD's?
Ive discussed it before but i'm finally ready to replace the springs, dampers & bushes on my 2002 156 SW.
The car has 18" wheels and as soon as i put them on i could feel the car was higher and more wollowy? going round bends.
As you can see in the pic, the car sits high and there are large gaps between the wheels and the wheel wells.
Ive already ordered Koni FSD's, Eibach sports stabaliser anti-roll bars (as mine are knackered) and a full powerflex kit.
The Eibach springs look good to me and i was looking at 30mm of lowering. Can anyone recommended these and does anyone have a pic of a 156 with these fitted?
Will 3cm be too much? Ive also been recommended to use alfa sportpack springs (Mines a Veloce but because its a sportwagon it doesn't have the 2.5 cm lower fronts and 2cm lower rear sport springs). Where can i get new sportspack springs from?
will the Koni's be ok with 2-3cm lowering?
Thanks for any help.
