    From memory, the Elite is standard springs and shocks
    The SRI is definitely "sports" springs
    Complicate it further as there are different types for different engines

    Equally, the shocks can be different, but normally just between standard and sports; mine were and had to be specially ordered

    Is there an easy way to tell if the suspension has been modified? I have a 55 Elite 2.8 and the ride isn't very soft and you crash through every hole in the road.

    The car has been into Vauxhall for a service and health check and nothing was picked on the suspension so I'm assuming everything is well with it. The car doesn't look to be lowered either.

    Thanks

    Forgot to mention that the springs are cumming of a 1.9 150 SRI and going on the same engine car.

    Just wanted to no if anybody had tried this before?

    The shocks on the SRI could be firmer for instance. I looked at some rear springs of an sri, compared to mine and they looked higher, but with thinner coils on them as well, witch surprised me.

    On my old 120 i put APEX lowering springs on and it was so bad i put the old ones back on.
