    Default standard VXR springs on SRI

    i need to lower my car, its a standard SRI 2.0 turbo and ive just spotted some springs for a vectra VXR these are standard too,
    but is the ride height slightly lower than the SRI standard??

    Cheers.

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Yes but it weighs more you will sit higher than a VXR on your lighter 2.0T. Springs are matched to a cars weight, a CDTi SRi's springs are different to a 2.2 petrol's and so on.

    Due to the VXR having a 2.8v6 lump your car may actually sit higher than it does now due to the lack of weight. Buy Eibach

    do you get the same kind of drop as eibach then, dont want to go stupid low. May even go coilovers now so i can decide where i like it sitting, thanks for the input though,now noted.
