    Default Lowering A Signum 2.8T

    The car is going in sometime next week to have the front top mounts and bearings replaced and while its apart I thought i'd get some lowering springs fitted, but no where seems to list springs for the 2.8 every other engine is listed just not my car! Which is typical. What i'm thinking is that as long as the front and rear axle weights correspond with the springs that they should be ok if I order some for a Signum with different engine? All advice welcome please chaps.

    Cheers

    Howard

    Thats what i was thinking Nige. But i spoke to them yesterday and they said we dont list any for the 2.8 and i just couldn't be bothered to argue with someone that sounded like they were more suited to working in burger king or mcdonalds lol. I will order a set of eibachs with the correct axle weight then.
