    Was just thinking they look massive compared to the eibachs, then again it's a while since I fitted a set of them. You'll love them buddy

    The originals were SRI springs? So does fitting Eibachs lower it more than an SRI is originally? I ask cause I may in the future (when another spring breaks) replace them all on my SRI with Eibachs, but not if its going to lower it even further, and I wouldnt like a harder ride than what the SRI is currently..

    The SRi springs are 15mm lower than a standard Vec, and the eibachs are 30mm lower than a standard vec, so eibachs will lower an SRi by a further 15mm. Eibachs are supposed to give a fairly comfortable ride, as they're "progressive" springs, even though they don't actually look like it judging by the gaps between the coils.
