Punto evo abarth springs

I'm a bit stuck with the abarth springs. Someone please help.
I have the 1.6mjet sporting and someone I know is selling the evo abarth springs. My plan is seeing that mine is diesel it will compress the springs more making the car lower as petrol springs compress more. But would a 1.6 diesel snap the abarth springs?

Lemme check EPER

Ok, the 1.2, 1.4, and 1.6 all have different springs. However, I believe that they will fit and shouldn't break them, but they will sit lower (by a few of millimeters).

Okay, because I understand that the abarth sits slightly lower so fingers crossed it should work out! Thanks!

We're only talking 3/8 of an inch at most. So it should be ok. The abarth springs are also a slightly stiffer

Will the ride be ok if you are using standard dampers?

Re: Punto evo abarth springs

That's what I am wandering to as I can also get the dampers. Would it be worth getting them. My car already has the stiffer springs that Fiat do as its the sporting model

If you can get the matching dampers it would be better.
