Recently purchased '83 Veloce :D, on major budget due to other projects. I have read that understeer is due to factory raising to meet US bumper height specs. I am used to tweeking Mcpherson strut front ends & not sure how this will respond to lowering. If I put say IAP reds on my '83 veloce for more euro stance:

- They say it lowers less than an inch, mine seems nose high & understeers, do they lower more in the front than the back?
- What approximate front camber would I end up with?
- I would like to end up with say 1 deg +/- neg in front & obviously 0 in rear (solid axle), what is cheapest way to adjust after I go down if it throws me too negative camber wise?
- Are there any hidden suprises or can I just put on the springs and not spend more? (retain shocks, etc for now)

PS some great threads, learned a lot & only been reading about 2 weeks.

the IAP springs are built for an aftermarket swaybar. for stock swaybar, go with Centerlines springs

I too got the IAP springs with stock swaybar... My car has a nice agressive stance (front is much lower than before), and handles significantly better than before.

Beware that the oil sump and/or guard will be very low to the ground after doing this, and if you don't already, you will absolutely need a low profile jack to even be able to roll it underneath the front suspension.

Overall, I'd say they're highly recommended!
