My feeling, and understanding from my mechanic, was that the US height was just an adjustment up from the European height, and that if restored to the European design height, the suspension would be correct as designed, rather than what you get with the US height. In other words, I'm not sure any other adjustment of the suspension is required.
Certainly, I never had any complaint with tire wear or handling in any of the Alfettas or GTV6s we drove, at least for the street.
Race setup, that's a different subject of course. Usually, with those setups you end up with something not very suitable for street use long term.
I think an example of that was the original front suspension alignment for the 164 from the factory. Wore out front tires at a prodigious rate. Totally unsuitable for the street long term. Alfa did change the alignment (toe setting) to basically what we had come to as street users.
