I have the H&R lowering springs on my Quad (I think they're roughly 1.6" drop) and I do notice the rear camber is off a bit. Not horrible. Sadly there are no adjustable rear control arms available yet for the Stelvio. I think there are for the Guilia.

I had mine lowered today too and noticed the camber was off just a touch. I did the 2.5 in MADNESS set up. Think it looks so much better than stock. No longer can I stick my entire fist in the wheel gap

Nice. As I look at yours mine is about the same height. Maybe the H&R's are more like 2".

looks great man. I love mine. Def a bit rough in mid and sport settings tho. Not too thrilled w rear camber but is what it is. How is your alignment ? I’m sort of pulling to right a little. Very subtle hard to say w hands off wheel. If pavement of not but def seems to want to pull over that way. Taking back in am to shop to see what mechanic says. Figured I’d let Springs set in for a week or so but still drifting over a bit. Would be nice to hear from others with this set up too.

My alignment is great, drives right down the road, straight. Mine is still settling in I am sure. I did end up removing the spacers. I think in the long run they would hurt thing with the car. The stock set up looks good, not great lowered which I can live with. Spacers just are not "needed"

Agree with the rear camber off some, but is what it is for a good look (no monster gap) I only drive in N or D now and keep the car in soft. I bought the Exhaust Controller so no need to go into RACE.

Question: Is the lowering primarily aesthetic or functional or both?
Thanks, John

Both. Body roll is substantially reduced. Corners on rails.
