I didn't try enough to get a 100% convincing setup but i don't really feel the need (keeping the race setup sway bars) of stiffer sway bar at the moment.. it would also add an additional layer of complexity to driving the car and believe it's already quite different than before with just the ohlins on road&track springs... get used to it before adding another thing to the mix, and do it only once you can clearly feel you need them....

Just call the new Sector 111 they are renamed Inokinetic.
https://www.inokinetic.com
I just had a long conversation with Shinoo and he has the swaybars in stock. Call him at (951) 551-0900
FYI he says he hopes to have Sector 111 back up and running soon but until then you can go through this other company.

And I have those sway bars on my car now they're absolutely amazing. I would get the adjustable and links they sell also. And you can get a package deal that way.

Initially I had them at medium setting and it was a nice intermediate step up from stock but because I track my car I went to full stiffness and that's where you want to be for tracking.

Good luck

Thanks for the info Al! Good to know about Shinoo, I sent him an email a few days ago, but never got a response. (which is a little unlike him)

My Ohlins just came in a few days ago and I'm excited to get them installed hopefully this weekend. Cannot wait to see the change.

Any good updates on the Ohlins being loud or making strange noises? Or any other complaints a potential buyer should be aware of?

I was set on this brand as i have a pair on my evo 10 and they are truly amazing, not only because of how they handle, but im much more impressed of how civilized they are on the road, I barely noticed a change in stock to the ohlins.

It seems many are having issues with strange noises and am curious to see if any fixes or updates have come along? My alfa will rarely see track use and mostly be used on the road, im sure most will say the ohlins are overkill, but I think when it comes to a cars geometry and suspension there's never an excuse to take the cheap road.

I had Ohlins on my Evo 9 and loved it! The only reason I'm really hesitant in purchasing it, is all the issues of noise and clanking. Hopefully it was incorrectly installed

No more issues with the noise or clanking at all. I did end up ordering a set of helper springs so I can get the front down about another 1/2" or so but the ride quality is so much better than stock and when pushing the car in the corners it's a whole new animal.

I have no issue with noise,
The ohlins is louder than the stock that’s a fact but for me not a noise or an issue.

The whole car is a noise,
Exhaust, TCT, Turbo, intake ect.

The reason for my question is,
I picked up my car few weeks ago from the ohlins technician and I was not happy with the car.

The car was 10mm 0.39” higher than stock and this was really not my goal

The alignment was an catastrophe, much more steering loads, no feedback from the rear, incalculably

Then the last two days my car was at my dealer for service and correction the alignment.

My dealer told me it is not possible to go lower than 10mm , lower and the spring is loose-fitting,
I believe this is the noise Issue from from @PistolPete

I want to be sure that the springs are correct
