  6. Sportwagon factory ride height

    Alfa GTA
    Morning, Does anyone know if when the Sportwagon GTa came out of the factory, if the back was higher than the front? I've seen a few images where it appears to be higher. I'm assuming it didn't have self levelling suspension and maybe they raised it 10mm so it would settle to level under a 2...

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out if my car has lowering springs on it, if i were to put lowering springs on the car, say a 30 mm drop, the tyres would be in the arches. Ive heard the 2.2 is lower anyway but does anyone know the standard ride height measurements from ground to wheelarch? Cheers Sean

  14. Uncomfortable ride. Crashing over bumps.

    Alfa Giulietta

Over bumps in road, slight uneven surfaces, the car is juddering horribly. Crashing noise and feel spreading...

  18. Front ride height differs from one side to other.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hey I recently bought a 2.0 gtv ts and have noticed that one side of the front ride height is about 2cm higher than the other. I took the measurement from in between the tops of the wheel up to the arch. I'm guessing it's suspension related but really have no clue and can't afford to get the...
