I'm sure you all know the form, something annoys you on the car and your straight on Autotrader or sites pricing up PCP deals
Obviously, unless you've Maserati money, nothing floats your boat and suddenly £550 for a set of rear wishbones seems a decent idea in view of how much you want to keep the car, but have it right.
I was kicking myself for not taking pre Eibach measurements, but luckily found some notes from last August saying my TI suspension sat at 90mm rim to arch, all round. Full tank of fuel barely made any difference, in fact I always thought the car felt nicer with a full tank. So in fact I've raised the height 10mm so far with the Eibachs.
Full tank of fuel on the Eibachs, that's probably around 70kg of fuel so say 45kg of fuel has dropped it 8mm, I got my Kids to get in, combined weight 68kg, rear went down another 10mm, that's with an empty boot, so God knows how it's going to handle a boot full of kit and a roof box.
Maybe Alfa knew a little something when they specced the rear springs (apart from they might snap), in that a SW was going to be used loaded up a lot. Maybe Eibach's theory is they make for single driver performance.
The Sportwagon rear springs are 5mm longer untensioned and slightly thicker wire then saloon, but I'd be happier if they raised the rear another 10mm as standard, not as much rake as a GTA sport wagon, but same idea.
Could these be ordered from Eibach?…. Ned?
