    Default Just a few quick questions about my new signum

    a few weeks ago i picked up my new 2005 signum 2.0dti elegance and i love the thing just i think it needs to be lowered i got a quote for a set of SPAX lowering springs for £130 i just wanted to know if thats a ok price and product for the car or if i should get some different ones?

    also would the standard shocks be ok with the drop?

    sorry i only have these 2 pictures right now

    If your going to change the springs fella do the shocks at the same time as if the shocks are the orignals the new springs will kill them in no time plus the handling will be better with new springs and shocks

    Eibachs are useless on a dti as the drop isn't near enough and the front sits high. Go with the spax springs mate. Did you get the price from LMF?

    I have SPAX on my 2.0T signum, standard shocks. IMO has a nice stance. I think i paid £130 for my springs and that was Dec 08. so thats not a bad price at all.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!
