Madness 2" lowering springs

Got around to installing these this week. Also put on the Athena 15mm front spacers and 20mm rears.
after about 100 miles they have settled and are a bit more them a 2" drop. I was gonna do a how to but honestly if you don't have a shop full of tools and a mechanical know how I would not recommend doing this on your own. The rears are a BITCH!! But looks really good. also these are progressive vs the stock linear if I am not mistaken, feel free to correct me if I am wrong. this is the wife's car so i have only had a hand full of miles in it as of the swap. it handles a bit better but the tires are the limiting factor. Over all a great product in function and form.

Hi Art,

We've shipped a large number of these and installed these in-house. We actually have these installed on our own Stelvio and have racked up 1000s of miles.

In fact, a couple of weeks back we went on a very nice scenic country road drive. We were on country roads with pot holes, gravel roads, etc. and the ride was still very much comfortable.

Let us know if you have any more questions about the springs, we will be more than happy to assist.

I am going to send you a direct PM to get your contact info and have one of our team members reach out to you directly!

Ride quality is not going to be as supple as stock. no attacking speed bumps anymore, but it handles way better like a sports sedan or a sport wagon.
