    Default will sri rear shocks fit my elite and lower it?

    hello people i lowered my v6 cdti elite just after i bought it 2 years ago and the front always sits approx 20mm lower than the back. I have just spotted someone local to me selling a set of rear sri shocks off a 150 bhp cdti and he has them posted as only fitting an sri and wont fit other models. If they did manage to fit my elite will they give me that 20mm i'm looking for.

    The shocks won't lower it, you want the springs. You don't say if he has shocks only or shocks and springs as a set.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    nice,I like the set up of the boot spoiler better than the irmy and the dtm ...it looks better with no over hangs of the boot.

    i have got 30mm pi lowering springs on the car at the min, i read somewhere on here that the sri rear shocks are about 20mm shorter than the elite one's. if there's no difference between them i may just have to spoil myself to a set of coilovers

    With that info then no they won't lower it any further than it is. They will stiffen it up a bit though.
