    NeuF Lowering Springs and rough roads, scraping on high curbs

    Hi all,

    So I bought a used 2015 Abarth with NeuF lowering springs. I love the car, but the ride on Louisiana roads is rough, plus I commute by ferry, which means getting on and off a movable dock which sometimes has me scraping bottom. Considering going back to stock to gain a little clearance, but I don't have the stock springs.
    My question is, do I spend money to go back to stock, or is there a better alternative that would still get me closer to stock ride height and maybe a slightly less stiff ride? Thanks!

    Look into H&R. They’re a little higher. Or instead of spending money on stock springs, find someone with stock that would want to swap with you. If you find someone that knows how to do it, the. Even better.

    gverelli, I was looking at the Eibach pro-kit based on the advertised drop. Thanks for the info, that's probably what I'll go with.

    Racerflash, I'm in Baton Rouge.

    Haring, thanks for the input, but I'd rather not swap in case I regret it later, like if my commute changes.

    Hey! I'm in Baton Rouge also! I have only seen one other Abarth around, and it was a red one with Veteran plates! We need to get together for C&C!

    Also, I have the stock springs! You're welcome to them!

    If you want to improve ride, replacing the rear shocks can help a lot. I assume for cargo space, the rear shocks are damn near parallel with the road. Which significantly reduces their efficiency. A high quality rear shock can improve ride a lot.

    Ended up going with the Eibach Pro-kit. Perfect for my needs. Still feels sporty, but not as rough riding and most importantly, doesn't scrape. I might even be able to get it on ramps now without having to drive onto 2x4's first.
