    Default New suspention fitted to the GSI

    Got the GSI back this morning after being in my mates garage. Had new Bilstein B4 shocks & -40mm H&R Springs fitted with new strut bearings, top strut mounts, Saab uprated drop links and Polybushed ARB's. Also had a new pre-CAT fitted as old one had a slight crack.
    The B4's are quite soft over standard GSI suspension but fells tight, hopefully it will settle a couple of more mm over the next few days but i'm more than happy how it looks and feels.

    BEFORE:



    AFTER:







    Some pics of other bits fitted. Irmy door pins, Insignia pedals & Alu foot rest:

    Cheers buddy, it's coming along really well in such a short period of ownership. Will be in the bodyshop in the next month for both bumpers to be painted, Irmy front splitter, VXR boot spolier and lower skirt paint & fit then moving onto interior goodies
