    Default Lowering a GSi

    Guys I'm after a little info please. After the trouble I've had with my rear springs I need to change them for the second time, I want to put a set of Eibach springs on, will these be OK with my standard shocks or will I have to upgrade these as well?

    Regards
    Braby

    You'll be fine, they "recommend" shorter shocks, but i've got 40mm PI's on mine, 60mm on my last car and stayed with standard shocks. never had any issues...

    If you do make sure to be careful about the auto headlight leveling. Lowered mine on coilovers but ever since the leveling doesn't work and the warning light is lit in the rev counter.
    Now i will be taking the coilovers off and fitting the standard shocks back on with some 45mm PI springs i picked up Thursday and then booked into Vauxhall for a service and to get the leveling all sorted.
