    Question Lifting the Abarth

    Okay so, Im taking on a pretty ambitious project here and have run into a cold trail in terms of seeking out information, so Im hoping you guys will be able to help!

    Im looking to lift my Abarth, and no, I dont mean by the jack-points. Im trying to find a good solution that will give me about 3 of lift, not alter the chassis too much nor the knuckle, and isnt (relatively) too expensive.

    So, my questions are: Do the struts from the 500L/500X have the same sway bar and knuckle mounting points, and are they bigger than the Abarth struts?
    And as for the rear, what size bolt hole should I be looking for to put bigger absorbers on the rear?
    So far Ive also seen that I can use the 500e springs to give it a bit of a lift as well, and was wondering if anybody had any insight into this?

    Any answers will be helpful, because thus far I cant get strut dimensions for the mounting holes, and thats where Ive been stopped dead.
    Or any suggestions too, thanks

    You might be able to find shocks/struts that would work with it, but I imagine finding a suitable spring would be a challenge. You could run standard pop springs and shocks for a minimal lift, maybe coilovers with custom springs and specially valved shocks if you want more?

    Just out of curiosity, why are you going for a lift? Seems counter to allot of the advantages of the abarth (small/light/sporty handling)

    500L springs will work on the front for sure. When we had our 500L, we swapped the springs with abarth springs to lower it. I actually have a set of front 500L springs for sale:

    I figured as much, but why look for more ground clearance from this car? It's like lifting a Porsche 911, or slamming an F-150 to the ground. Both can done, but one can't help but wonder about the initial choice of vehicle.

    I would suggest making sure that the half shafts can take it. It may not as simple as you think.

    Good point. Even on SUVs with lots of wheel travel, a 3 inch lift is often more than what the cv joints, which are alreday overbuilt due to the nature of the vehicle, can take. I doubt a Fiat’s could withstand it.
