    Get the Pi 45mm springs with elbach shocks and you will have the best comfort and handling package. None of the cheap coilovers last long nor give a very good ride.

    eibach shocks? do they make them. thought it was springs they did.

    i would say either 45mm pi springs or 45mm LO springs. ive got lo springs and seem fine just now. im on bilstien b4 shocks but if you have sri suspension at the moment keep it at that with just the springs because my b4's bottom out sometimes with 45mm springs. b4 struts are longer then the original sri suspension. hence the ocaisional bottoming out

    really need bilstien B6 shocks minimum with 45mm springs but there a bit more expensive. but would be well worth the investment.

    sri's are 15mm lower than a bog standard vec. and will just take the 45mm at a very big push. but as i have not got the b6's or b8's i cant really say much but iknow there more suitable than my b4's

    I asked about the B6's and he advised i went for the B8's as they are shorter..i think they work out just a little bit more. I was about to order a supersport kit and he laughed at me
