Re: Springs for GT?
The reasons I didn't go for uprated (probably Eibach) springs when having the FSDs fitted were a) to save money, b) I wasn’t sure how this would effect the ride quality, and c) I didn't want to lower the car as it wasn't great over speed bumps.
Having had the FSDs fitted, the GT copes with speed bumps a lot better than before as the suspension doesn't compress as much, so in hindsight, I could have lowered it and got away with it.
If I had a second stab at the suspension, I think I would go for lowering springs, but only if they did actually lower the front rather than making it look like there were gold bars in the boot. Having said that, I’m not sure how harsh this would make the suspension. The ride quality is firm but not harsh on standard springs.
PS several weeks after having the FSDs fitted I am still very happy with them, but now the suspension seems to be squeaking/creaking from the rear, maybe it’s the bushes, I’m not sure, but I’m waiting for Western Alfa Romeo to open in Edinburgh before I get this checked as Arnold Clarke have lost the plot. So if I were you I would get the bushes checked at the same time and maybe go for aftermarket ones.
Hope this helps
