Adjustable suspension for Bravo HGT

Hey guys,

Currently I am running static suspension kit from Weitec -35/-35 but I would like to go lower.

I would like to buy an adjustable kit, but not like KW for 850e and more ... Do I have some cheaper otpions???

Thanks for your advices.

Cheapest and probably best option is to stop putting a lot of time and effort and money into strange changes to a car that is already quick and looks OK !

Why not just drive it and enjoy it ?

It will never be a Murciellago or Delta Integrale...

Re: Adjustable suspension for Bravo HGT

You are not making a "better fitment", you are not improving the looks, instead you are spoiling a well-designed performance Fiat.

Around 10 years ago the forum was full of kids trying to "improve" their cars by removing the suspension and fitting massive wheels etc. I thought those days had gone...

I'm in the same position. I'm running Lowtec 35/30 shocks and spring set and aboslulely agree that a little adjustability would be nice!

Re: Adjustable suspension for Bravo HGT

The main question is why would any one want to Ruin the suspension on a car putting it that low and making the car far less driveable on the road?

Re: Adjustable suspension for Bravo HGT

@MinoSVK you can fit coilovers from a Fiat Coupe 20vt ...
@bluejohn125 well designed performance?????? Are you joking ........
The standard cars handling is terrible ....
Compare it to the Alfa Romeo GTV which has the similar setup apart from the rear independent suspension ......fiat could have used that in the Bravo/Marea and Coupe models but chose not to compromising the handling
We all love our cars in different ways and choose to look after them in different ways if minosvk wants to lower his car ..instead of slatting him, we should be helping him ....that what a car enthusiast community does ....

Re: Adjustable suspension for Bravo HGT

Well, I found one and actual solution for me at this point.

The good thing about Weitec suspesnsion, especially the springs is, that the springs are progressive type, so u can cut a few turns. I meassured everything, difference betweet front and rear and the result was I need to cut one turn from back springs. I did it and the back sits about 12mm lwer which is the perfect number t match the front. I also fit the 15mm spacers, put on Yokohama Advan tyres and guys ... the result is amazing! I can cut corners as hell, the car is even more stable then before adjusting these things and I am so happy about it! But think about warming up the tyres before cutting )

Anyway thanks for your posts.
