2018 Giulia Ti Sport | QV wheels factory spec Pirellis, Alfissimo spacers 12mm/17mm, Alfissimo Springs
TLDR: Awesome! Phenomenal looking. Didn’t expect it to be as close to OEM comfort as they were. Amazingly flat cornering (actually have to relearn car’s handling characteristics). Can be slightly disrupting through corners on consistently rough backroads.
I told myself I wasn’t gonna lower this one...and here we are. What can I say, I hate wheel gap. But I really also wanted a comfortable car for once, short of getting KWs, I was hesitant to do anything. Additionally, reviews and feedback I read about other lowering springs were not exactly favorable, moreover they all seemed to just dump the front end. Every photo I saw seemed to show a Giulia hyper raked.
When Jason said he was developing springs to fix all the problems with the other springs on the market, I was one of the first in line to volunteer my car and wallet. Although it’s only been a few days, I must say, it was a good choice.
Disclaimer I’ve only had the springs for less than a week, but I’ve daily driven it and gone on a spirited cruise (100mi+ total) The car felt different after the first night I had driven it, I would assumed it all settled in properly now.
Comfort: Great! As with any lowering spring, expect a stiffer ride. Not much harder than stock but it is noticeable, I would wager it’s less noticeable if you’re not on the Corsa tires haha. Most importantly, not bouncey. I was a little concerned because after install, I experience some bounciness but that that went away the next day.
Performance: Let’s just say I feel my body moving a lot now, the cornering forces went from body roll to my body rolling. It’s honestly kind of entertaining, I think, how flat am I cornering that I’m moving so much in my seat. I have to relearn how to drive the car because all the prior predictable inertia transfer in twisty corners is more or less gone. Reminder though, I did also install spacers at the same time, that may play a small part in this.
Looks: See photos. Not sure if the rear is slightly lower than the front or if it’s an illusion because the wheels are closer to the fender in the rear. I’ve been mulling it over for the past few days I think it’s an illusion. Either way, this is way better than having an overly lowered front IMO.
Cons: I wouldn’t say any cons. Just that when driving particularly bumpy twisting roads is now different (as I said I need to relearn the car), it feels more disrupting since there’s less suspension travel in either direction, but this is to be had with any lowering spring I’d imagine.

Hope this helps y’all ! Definitely recommend the springs!
