    Default question

    considering dropping my suspention a little,but my last vectra when hitting slightest of holes always made banging noises,does all springs make it such a hard ride?or is that to do with the tyres?

    Depends what setup your last Vec had (wheel/tyre size, suspension drop, damper type)

    I run my dti on eibachs and the standard sri struts, I have 225/45/R17 tyres and the ride is silky smooth

    Were all of your struts in good condition and not seized? TBH mine is fine with any bump (obviously if there is a crater on the road you feel it lol)

    45mm/40mm thats what i put on the car now i remember,and i really think it could do with lowering what do you think?

    as for my struts its may well of been one of them as you lot seem to think yours are all ok where mine was dodgy it seemed to creek going over bumps and bang going over little pot holes

    Ah if you were running 40/45 chances are it would have been PI's. The eibachs only drop the SRi by 15mm but thats all they need. When fitting make sure all of the struts are in good nick and replace as necessary
