I have a set of H&R Spacers for sale, 23mm front and rear, they’ve been on a car for 9 months, 3000 miles. They’ll fit all Granturismo models. Around £500 new, £300 posted.

I would have had these but not sure if 23mm is too wide plus plan to lower by 20mm. Typical!

23 is not too wide. I have 22 mm front & 25 mm rear. Was thinking of dropping it a bit as well. Is yours skyhook and what are you doing to drop it?

Yes they are hub centric, so you get a set of small bolts for these spacers and then use standard bolts into these. I have a set (two years on the shelf) and must get round to fitting them!

HNY Dick G, hope your good - tempting, an Engineering background makes me wonder if there are any long term affects with running with spacers - anybody know??

Just goes against the grain a bit for me changing anything from a OEM mechanical design intent - especially running gear.......

Oops finish reading before responding. I am not sure whether skyhook or not. I think not, but conflicting info on the S. I was going to drop 20mm all around using H&R springs. Not got around to measuring yet.
The FD springs for mine lower it 31mm and spacer kit recommendation was 18mm and 22mm. I guess they know better than I.

And HNY to you to @DeeTee. Whenever possible we revert the cars to standard, as Maserati desired.

I am an engineer and over-thougt the whole mechanical effect of spacers too. I eventually bought some used, from a user here on SM and fitted them for the aesthetics.

After driving the car a lot, even racing it hard, I can honestly not feel anything negative.

I used them on a car for three years and never felt a difference and no issues with Stress. Every GT should have come out the showroom with the stance they give. Someone get then bought and improve the looks. Easiest upgrade and looks so much better.
