: :I know GTV-6's well. I had a 82 and an 83(the 82 got totaled). The 83 was lowered with Shankle springs, had headers and Ronal wheels. I thought the car handled great the way it was set up.
I've also had two different 78 Alfetta GTs and a 76 Sport Sedan that my wife and I put well over 100,000 miles on. My first Alfa was a 1969 GTV and I currently have a 1973 Spider that I use as one of my daily drivers.
I thought the Alfas were great cars because I could enjoy true European heritage and road feel for a darn reasonable price.
I did have a increase in ride height on an Alfa from the installation of Bilsteins. Also, be sure to drive the car for awhile and re-measure the ride height several times. It is sometimes difficult to produce consistent measurements. Have you verified that you have a level place to measure the car?
: I just noticed more space between the tire and the wheel wells, than normal. Hey, what kind of Alfas have you had, did you know I was really into them for a while? My dad still is, of course..check this out:
