    Angry irmscher spring/shocks question!

    ok, so i have the full factory fitted irmscher kit on my signum 3.0cdti.

    problem!.............****** speed humps! and as the front lower spoiler has been cracked b4 it is a weak point, nether the less, if speed humps wasnt invented i wouldnt have this problem, but it is low anyway, soooooo..............

    can you fit normal standard springs to the irmscher shocks?

    i know i'll be sacrificing the look a little bit, and wont be as stiff in the corners, that i can live with but not having that spoiler on, that i cant live with.

    Could be wrong but I didn't think the irmscher shocks were ever available in the UK, are you sure they are irmy shocks? Also what colour are the springs?

    I had the Irmscher shocks and springs fitted to my 3.0 ltr and it lowered it by 30mm and i had the i500 bumper on too. Speed bumps never caused that much of an issue.

    But saying that i did have to replace my front springs after 60,000 miles / 3 years.

    Don't forget how heavy the front axel is!!!


    It's Mustang time...

    ok, im only telling you how it is, in my 1st 2 wks of owning the car, i managed to catch the spoiler 5 times, i return, i got a nasty looking spoiler, trust me, i couldnt of gone over them any slower, i would of practically parked on top of them lol.

    was sort of hoping that the extra 30mm height back would solve the prob.

    then again im not sure how to physyically measure the height without taking the springs off, i can literally only get 1 finger between the arch and tyre, wheels are 19 with 35mm profile.

    so could i be right in saying that, if my springs are red, and the shocks are red, are the shocks irmschers too?..................i feel every little crack in the road, makes for back breaking ride sometimes especially with the ever so great condition of our roads in brum lol
