Vintage Alfa’s often need a ride height adjustment

Mike hosted the Scuderia Alfa Romeo of Houston car club tech session on June 16th. He used a customers Alfa to demonstrate how to adjust the front ride height on the vehicle. It was a terrific session and I learned a lot.

I learned that the Alfa was intentionally spec’d to carry a single driver when balancing the ride height so you cannot assume that the anatomy of the right and left wheels is the same.

The specialized tool to remove the springs is absolutely necessary as any other method could result in severe injury due to the power of the springs.

Below is a short excerpt from the Tech Session. Mike is very dynamic and knowledgeable. He is a great presenter.
