  1. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, know this is a heathen question, but struggling to find 1" lowered rear springs that are not progressive wound. Know it's not ideal but has anyone ever just cut a coil off their standard springs to achieve this on a 164? I confess to once doing it on a Fiat, front and rear, and it worked...
  2. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Have bought a set of adjustable dampers with lowered springs fitted, for a 24v 3.0 1994 164 manual Super. Front end is sitting a bit high as the rear springs are at least 30mm shorter than standard, so back goes down and fron, even though shortened springs, goes up. My idea of a fix is 20cm...
  3. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, What I don't understand is why the 164 3.0 12v front springs were not uprated to cope with the extra weight of the 3.0 24v engine. Maybe over the general weight of the car the extra 2 cams are not huge but is that right in terms of handling? The 164 24v's I've driven have been brilliant but...

  6. Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    The time has come to adjust the riding level of the car. As I don't want to destroy or mess up the original springs I planning to use the "Lowering set 750/101 Sprint / Spider from OKP in Germany. (OKP Parts & Engineering GmbH, München, Ihr zuverlässiger Händler für Alfa Romeo und Ferrari...
  7. Suspension, Steering, Brakes, Wheels & Tires
    Greetings: I have scoured the BB for an answer to this, but nothing has popped up. Plenty of discussion on spring pans and spacers. I just completed a refurbishment and upgrade of the suspension of my '91 Spider. That effort was made considerably easier by my recent experience restoring my '67...
