Rear Nivomats been checked and all fine, my question is , I feel the front is sitting a little high, can front be lowered to suit the rear ?

It may be that your fronts haven't been replaced with the Veloce (saloon) front shocks then, if it is sitting high. Can you post a profile picture of the car so we can gauge relative height from front to rear?

Yeah I see what you mean, it doesn't have the correct Alfa stance, if anything it should be lower at the front than the rear not vice versa. Its possible you have the wrong front springs. However if you are going to change anything I'd change the Nivomats, saloon Veloce springs all round, new saloon top mounts for the rear and then some upgraded shocks, FSD, Bilstein B4, something like that. :)

Do you think the front springs have been changed in the past?

I would suggest fitting new Veloce front springs to match your Nivomat rears then in that case, but it'd be gutting if you did all that work and it just ended up being exactly the same as it is now.

Its OK Pud, wasn't going to buy from them, just posted to see if those will do the job, I can get them for £99 from a friend.

They will do the job, no doubt about that. Eibach make very good springs, I had those exact same front springs on my 3.0 156 a few years ago, a good balance of handling & comfort.
