    Default Lowering 1.9CDTI SRI 150

    Finally got my car back from the dealers today, vibration problem sorted

    I was thinking about lowering the car a touch, before the car went in and since they have fitted new springs and shocks it now looks higher than before. Probably because everything is new.

    So definetly want to lower it now, I want to lower it (keeping the current shocks - they are new), so looking for some advice on what springs will do the job.

    How much of a drop do you get with those ? Did you keep the standard SRI shocks fitted?

    Sorry for the questions, new to this lark. Glad I'm not fitting them

    As the SRi is already lower than most of the rest of the models you will only get a 15mm drop. That is the maximum you can go without changing the shocks as well, I have currently kept my standard shocks

    Should be the same as mine, think it's the third one in the list.

    Just ring LMF to order it, give them the axle weights off the plate on you B pillar inside the drivers door and they will get you the right one

    Cheers
