    Default Info needed on spring heights

    Alrite guys ive been thinking about new springs all round for my sri but got a few questions that i hope yous can answer.1st when they say 35mm lowering does that mean 35mm lower than a standard vectra? or a sri,iam right in thinking the sri's have sports springs and are lower than a standard vectra?.....2nd what is the min lowering i can get a kit,what im after is lowering it and stiffing up the ride slightly but not wanting its arse scrapping the road..

    35mm will be from standard ride height so you'd see about 20mm extra maybe less, depends how worn your current springs are.

    Eibachs on my 50k mile CDTi BSRi made very little difference to the ride height but the Eibach/B6 combination made a BIG difference to the handling.

    i have the eibach pro kit on my veccy sri estate cdti and it dropped it by about 10mm which looks better now as the wheels fill the arches but the ride height is still fine for the speed bumps and kerbs

    and handling is totaly improved alot smother than vx springs but 100 times better cornering and grip with zero body roll best thing i have bought apart from the tuning box lol

    I was very surprised by how little body roll there is with the Eibachs & there's certainly no need for a stiffer anti-roll bar

    I fitted Apex 35mm springs to my sri 150. Seems to sit a little lower at the front. No body roll now and a HUGE improvement in handling. Bargain at 108 delivered.
