    Default Ride heigth

    i am looking for someone with a 1.9cdti vectra sri who still has the original heigth springs and shocks in their car,and then i need that person to measure from the underside of the wheel arch to the center of the wheel in the back. the reason is one side of my car is lower than the other so one of my springs is screwed.i dont want the car any lower than it is now because of the roads and my thinking is if a sri is already 20mm lower than standard and i can find out how much my car has droped with the weak spring ,say 20mm as a guess then i will know my car is already 40mm lower than standard and by replacing the springs with apex ones 35mm then my car will still be no lower than it is now.if that makes sense and it doesent matter about wheel size since we are measuring to the centre so please will someone do this for me and if anyone who has the car lowered aswell wants to do it they will then know exactly how much there car has been lowered from standard please it will only take a minute HERE IS WHAT I MEAN

    If you didn't want to replace with lowering springs then I have a standard Sri spring I could send to you and you just pay the postage if that'll help ya? Could send it dirt class TNT Monday?

    yea i checked up your car to see was it sri or what.i have read a load of threads on this site where lads were saying the sri was 20mm not 15mm thats where i got my info out of but thats not gospel either ,even if it was 15mm it still means it will be only a touch lower than now so still happy
