Re: lower or uprated springs, advice needed
If your car is a Sport Pack car then it will already be about -25mm lower than a standard 156. Autodelta has springs which are -25mm, so in theory about the same as Sport Pack. Alternatively Eibach are the best option with their -30mm spring.
However you must fit uprated dampers at the same time. The Alfa dampers are very weak for the V6 and compress too easily and too quickly.
A full suspension kit will totally transform the suspension but they are expensive, however installing dampers at the same time as the springs will save you 4 hours labour if you decided to fit dampers at a later date.
