I was able to locate some previous post for the standard GTA ride height listed as F:350mm R:360mm. I believe this is for the saloon, and the SW rides a little higher on the rear. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks in advance.

Just got a new set of AD coilovers fitted. The rake looks a bit off, and would like to confirm what the proper height should be, as measured from the centre of the wheel to the top of the wheel arch. I figured there is a spec from Alfa, but so far can only locate the figures for the saloon and not the SW.

It started off at 360mm front, 350mm back. After some adjustment of the coilovers, I measure 345mm in front, and 355mm in back, which looks about right. Nonetheless, would still like to know what the standard settings are for the wagon... anyone know?

Sorry, I wasn't that clear:

I have a sportwagon with factory suspension, would my measurements be accurate enough for your purpose?

Just measured it from the driveway to the crest of the arch.

It was 660mm front and 685mm at the rear.

I guess the measurements you quoted are from the centre of the wheel?

My car has standard 17" teledials and there are no dead bodies (or other weight) in the boot!

Thank you. The difference is between front and rear is sufficient. Yours is at 25mm or 1 inch. Mine is at 10mm, which according to previous threads, is standard for the saloon. Looks like I will have to raise the rear a bit!

I would love to know the differences between the GTA saloon and SW - I've heard rumours of more rear ride height (now confirmed by this and softer springs, but no-one seems to know for sure. Plus some suggestions that some gubbins like the rear brake callipers might be different. Anyone?
