Hello fellow Alfa drivers.
Have a problem on mine. I have 220'000 km's on the clock and see that the springs are starting to wear - first noticed in on the wheels alignment, which was hard to do right due to the worn our springs under heavy engine at the front. The inner parts of the tires seems to wear of unevenly.
So, the decision was to spark some life into my old lady with new springs. I found TI (used) springs for only 25 pounds (yep, all 4). But they are from a Q4 4x4 model, with the 2,4 motor.
Mine is also a facelift model, post 2008, like the one i found. But are the springs the same on the Q4 Ti and normal Ti ? Will I be able to fit them onto my 2,4 Lusso (FWD) from the 2,4 TI Q4 model ?
The other option is an Eibach pro kit, which i found new, but it is 130 pounds for the set.
Also, second question is will the Eibachs be OK with the stock shocks ? I mean will they wear out more quickly or is it a common practice to put lowering springs on stock shocks ?
Because I am thinking that it will have less travel with the lowering springs and therefore might get more preasure and wear out more quickly. And I am sure that this was already asked before, but could not find the answer...
I thank You all in advance !
