Just checked my car. Build date 06/17.

Floor to center of wheel arch:
Front 27.5"
Rear 28.0"

Appearance wise lower does look better. I dropped my 2006 M coupe with H&R sport springs. Lowered that car about 1.25". It has a shorter wheelbase that this car and I do wonder if I lower the QV how many scraps I will suddenly hear as it certainly feels close to scraping at a few locations. I think I'm sticking with stock height...at least for now.

Current Cars
2017 Jaguar F Pace S - Red - English
2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia QV - White - Italian
2006 BMW Z4 M Coupe - Blue - German/American
2014 Range Rover - Corris Grey - English....

So I jist had my ST springs and the first couple of miles I have a bit of rub from the back, is that normal? I love the way it sits now but im a bit concerned with the rub as I want to track it and Idont want to be rubbing in the middle of the track.

Stock wheels and tire sizes? No you should definitely not be rubbing, and especially not from the back. Any chances you mounted the front springs on the back?

That is a great picture, thanks for sharing!

Car is beautiful, BTW. Please share impressions of the ST spring vs OEM.

But yeah, rubbing on the rear is strange. Maybe Eurocompulsion could chime in?

Can you measure the height of the front and rear wheel wells to see how low it is for comparison purposes?
Stock tire sizes front and rear?

Thanks!

That car is really slammed, I am not surprised it is rubbing. If you turn the steering wheel to full lock in a parking lot do your fronts rub at all?

Whomever sold you those springs needs to give you your money back. Rubbing on stock wheels/tires is not acceptable.

My 2018 has exact measurements as yours at 3300 miles, fwiw.

To the person who is rubbing in the rear, where is the rubbing? Internal liner? Fender? Plastic stone guard piece, or?

New member, long time lurker. I've been following the forum and this car since it was announced. Now I'm seriously looking into this car but have some questions still, especially with the suspension.

Does any one know the spring rates of some of the aftermarket lower springs and whether the stock shocks (and expensive ones at that) have enough damping and travel to not bottom out and wear out prematurely? Since the vehicle is just 2 years old, stories of blown shocks haven't surfaced yet but that may change in another year or two.

Ordered The H&R 28715-2 springs for my 2018 Alfa QV. I always go with H&R if I am going with a spring choice on any of my cars.

Best price I found, its a 2 week wait time at the moment. $286 shipped. Very nice customer service.
Will attach pictures and measurement after install, and alignment.
