Suspension Lowering Kits

For those who lowered their Stelvio, did you notice any difference in your adaptive cruise control or front/rear sensors? Did you need to check for proper alignment after getting it lowered? I am thinking of installing a 1.2 inch lowering kit in my Stelvio. Marzio and Marco have provided some good input, any suggestions/input is much appreciated. One nice thing on our Stelvio, we have ground clearance to work with.
Thanks

Im annoyed that active suspsension cant be lowered...
All my cars are lowered... or at least the sport packs should be lowered... at least 10mm from the regular Stelvio.
Like some others brands do.

You should always get an alignment after changing anything in the suspension. That is a rule for any vehicle.

1.2" is a mild drop and should have little to no effect on the vehicle sensors. What the sensors are looking for is still there it is just the Z position of the sensor that as changed.


Let us know if you have any other questions

Not that exact kit. We do have a photo of a more aggressive kit that we are working on (about 2.5" in the front and 2" in the back). So the mild kit is roughly half as low as this;
