trying to pull together a bit of information for a collegue of mine. For the past 4 years or so hes been running a 1,9 cdti signum Elite automatic.
Recently he traded up to a 2010 Insignia SRi cdti sport tourer automatic. Hes find the suspension and ride generally far to hard. Descriped as 'bouncy' on A roads etc.
Now i advised him that its the difference between Elite & SRi, going back to the vectras, the difference is 15mm height, as well as harder... is this the same for the Insignia range?
Further more, the car came with 18inch wheels, which he has taken off, and now fitted 17inch wheels, he informs me its made little difference..
Hes now considering changing the shocks and springs.. hoping its a cheaper option than selling and loosing alot of money. ideally putting and elite setup on the car and keeping his SRi stuff in the loft fot if he ever sells the car.
As i dont know much about the insignia, please could you guys help? Is the Insigina generally a harder ride than a vectra? Or is it simply the difference between elite/Sri?
Further more, would you think a set of Elite (or other model?) Shocks and springs would cure this?
Cheers for any help..
