Installed a Go Pedal and ECM = rocket ———->
Update on autolevel: The wiring diagram says that the sensors are fed 5 V so the reading should be between 0 and 5V, and nominally 2.5V. That means that the rear sensor is working perfectly and the front sensor is not. I even tested this by jacking up the car and see that the rear sensor reading is consistent (reading changes a lot) while the front is not (reading changes only slightly). Most likely fault is that the dirty and therefore hard to assemble front sensor connector is not making proper contact on the 5V feed, although that feed also goes through a connector in the dashboard <sigh>.Changed engine oil yesterday.
Changed LSD fluid today. Only 5000 miles on the diff, see picture of drained oil below.
Installed the rear suspension sensor, step one of getting headlight autolevel working. I've been working on this for nearly 2 years. The rear requires drilling and tapping two holes in the right lower suspension arm. The correct bracket may vary with production date and model in use (I have a Sept 2017 built NAFTA spec MY2018 Q4 with performance pack). The front requires tapping an existing suspension hole, plus modifying the sensor mounting bracket. It appears that the NAFTA front cross member is not really designed to allow for mounting of the sensor bracket.
oof, I'm at about 15-1/2" The QV front springs are probably going to be quite a bit stiffer due to the larger engine in the QV. I'd be weary of them.Hi JeFizz
I measured 14 1/4” as requested.
How does this compare to yours? I would like to try oem qv front springs for kicks but don’t feel like doing the job again let alone twice more if I didn’t like it. As for now, the centerline springs feel good. My only res is perhaps too little drop in front solely based on visual but need camber readings to make final determinations bc excessive negative camber wear on tires sucks especially in conjunction with excessively bottoming out.
The QV springs feel great imo. Not super stiff at all, improves and limits any body roll. In race I get less wheel spin on corner exit. With the stiffer active dampener setting, the car really drives out of corners really well and mostly neutral unless u really goose it. Just added race too so the stiffer active works even better as a better match than stock giulia w active yet no race.oof, I'm at about 15-1/2" The QV front springs are probably going to be quite a bit stiffer due to the larger engine in the QV.

YOu have QV fronts now too? I thought is was only rears.The QV springs feel great imo. Not super stiff at all, improves and limits any body roll. In race I get less wheel spin on corner exit.

On bumpy roads just flick the active to soft and ride feels the same. I do wonder about engine weight differential between 2.0 vs 2.9 but overall weight diff is approx 3715 (QV) vs 3805(Q4 sr) front to rear close to 50/50. I saw non roof listed at 3615. So sun roof vs cf is huge difference. Overall I’m super happy w QV spring choice!! Ride height excellent in form and function and less rake. Centerline springs only $191 delivered.
Yo...Hi.....sup....yes...first used OEM 18 QV springs to assess ride.(I was ignorant bout 6/17 changeover) oh well.YOu have QV fronts now too? I thought is was only rears.
Pics would be great when you have a chance.Yo...Hi.....sup....yes...first used OEM 18 QV springs to assess ride.(I was ignorant bout 6/17 changeover) oh well.
Twas good so.....went w centerline QV springs although they were clueless on rate but drop was attractive....8”
figured they’ve survived for 1/2 century so roll the dice.
Installed rears first to check height and ride. Perfect!! spent 2 weeks w it.
As for the front.....,
Didnt want too low front bc; negative camber tire wear, bottoming out, crappy look....was concerned might be too low so......purchased shims just in case.
Installed one front, no shim and checked.......realized perhaps too high!
Thought bout cutting the factory pad but didn’t. Let see what pans out.
2 weeks later...,
overall front 1/4 too high imo yet added clearance appreciated.
QV springs w race and active spot on!!
Might cut pads at later date!!
Please excuse length of this discourse as I didnt have time to write a succinct one!
(Abraham Lincoln) sorta of🥴🤔🤣🇮🇹🙏
Good question! Ideally I like the wheel centered in the well all things being equal if ride height was enough for enough ground clearance, in spec negative camber towards max, centered wheel etc...With that in mind, I do run 235/40 and 265/35 so tires slightly taller and fill the well more as a purposeful optic w function towards overall height and less gap.
