    Default help!!!

    new to the site!! lol just bought a vec c sri 2.0 turbo has a few mods such as lowerd susp 19 inch snowflakes problem is that it struggles to get over speedbumps!! pot holes are a nightmare and the inner side of the two front tyres are slightly rubbing on the bodywork of the wheelarch as there is some wear on the inside tyres and where it has been rubbin the arch!! back seems fine though! my 1st thoughts were to get 235 45 19 but think that would be worse as it would rub on the body work even more as current tyres are 235 35 19 ?? i have no idea what susp kit is on the car and was wondering if i would have to get a whole new susp kit to lift it a little?? if so what would be the best adjustable susp kit to get? or could i just replace the front susp and leave the back as it is? would appreciate any help!! cheers!!

    Really need to know whats on it mate, it definatly doesn't sound like standard VX sports suspension as it shouldn't be rubbing. Are you sure you don't have a broken spring?

    Also that tyre size is correct for your car

    have you got spacers fitted? or maybe the camber is incorrectly set on the struts..there's room for 245's even fully dropped... could you take some pics?... even if you change the springs you need to sort the arch issue..this can be easily sorted by rolling the arch lip and if need be flaring the arch slightly (I have an easy diy method for this that doesnt involve money of hammers )
