    Default Lowered the GSi yesterday, with a lot of help from

    Paulvectrac, who very kindly drove over to Harrogate from Morecambe. Thanks fella it was much appreciated.

    Thanks to TimTay too who recommended the springs from Lo Suspension.

    Well happy with the outcome, the car looks and sits a hell of a lot better with the drive not being too hard either.

    Anyway take a look for yourselves and let me know what you think

    Yeah, I think it will drop another 5mm-10mm yet - handles the speedbumps near me really well and no bottoming out.

    We get round to doing anything just the springs, TBH we struggled like hell with drivers side, but the other 3 went like a dream.

    Paul the web address for the springs is

    http://www.losuspension.com/

    you know it makes sense fella, get the siggy lowered

    nope it has xenons and I've just replaced the from bumper but not got round to drilling the holes for the washer jets! The bumper is coming off again anyway to replace the lower grill with a siggy one to match the irmscher grill better and I'm outting on a irmscher splitter too - so im doing at all the same time when the bumpers off.

    Well spotted though!
