With my recent purchase of a GT 3.2, I have been throwing a lot of £££ at it to get her how i want. The stock suspension was knackered and i came across a Bilstein B12 kit going for a decent price.
Having just had this fitted, i was shocked to see how low it actually was! While it looks smart, I do like a good B-Road blast. My Honda Accord Type R devoured B-roads when it had an Eibach / Bilstein B6 setup - the Alfa is just too low with these springs and the bumper has already scraped a couple of times.
I am already at the point of looking for replacement springs. The obvious choice for me is an Eibach Pro-Kit. From what i read, these are not too low. I already have the Bilstein B8 dampers, i just need a better spring.
I also find the H&R too soft / bouncy. I relate the bounce to the lowness - I also experienced this when I lowered my old clio 60mm from 40mm springs (the 40mm was a much better, more taught setup).
From reading online, it seems that H&R are one of the lowest spring companies out there. While I am annoyed at myself for the ££ I have just spent to have these fitted, there is no point in me carrying on with them if i don't have the confidence to drive the car faster than 60mph on an un-even road.
It also crossed my mind that the springs are 'Universal' for the 147 / 156 / GT Range - and struggle with the added weight of the V6.
So guys (and girls), please advise me on the way to go? Can anyone with a GT V6 running on Pro-Kit springs please show me some pictures of theirs? (Apparently they don't lower the front much?) Some feedback on suspension travel / feel etc would also be great.
Many thanks in advance.....oh and it anyone fancies some H&R springs with around 1000 miles on them, let me know!
