In you experiance is this correct or...?>
What wheels have you got on you Alfa then Dublin?
Havnt seen many pics of you motor.
My wheels are modified and one-offs.8.5 x 18 inch(8.1 kilos weight) with 225/35/18 Falken FK451 wide wall performance tyres.The rear arches are rolled and flared out by 10mm,and all inner wheel arch linners are ripped out and thrown in the bin.
The only way my car runs with it lowered 55mm front and 45mm rear is because I have muiti point adjustable bump,rebound and height KWs,the front wheels are toed in by 1 degree.This is because they are 8,5 x 18 inch aloys and with the extreme lowering toed in by 1 degree gives me the best grip and contact between tyre and tarmac.
Also my car has bigger anti-roll bars,modified drop links,front upper and rear upper strut braces and combined with the KW Variant 3 bump and rebound settings the car doesnt roll or flex when on bumpy roads or when cornering.Its set up like a race cars suspension would be.Hard and harsh ride,theres no give in the suspension setup,but its great and I like it like that.
If you lower your car by 60 mm then it WONT be driveable,you probably wont get 2/3rds or full steering lock when turning the car,you will destroy the tyres,wear out the suspension arms and rubbers on the front from extreme lowering.You will throw out the camber an wear out the tyres very fast.You will also catch the wheels off the bodywork and damage the bodywork,you wont have a perfect car for long.
Lowering your car by 45mm on front and 35-40mm on rear will be fine,any lower and you will wreck tyres,bodywork and suspension components if you go any lower.What size wheels and tyres are you running?
Heres some pics just for you.
