    Hello,

    I done my SRi 45mil front and 40 rear as i felt 30 just wasnt enough. I didnt change the shocks, although I do plan to upgrade them as they do play an important role, but i'm running 19inch snow flakes and my biggest fear is that it the ride was going to be a bit harsh.

    Been the gambler i am, i still went for it and i'm pleased to say it hasnt killed the ride..

    It sits pritty as well, nice and almost looks like it rolled out the factory like that i'm impressed.

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRI With a few added extras

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 120

    Year : 06

    Default

    I have a 30mm drop with 18" snowies, changed the shocks and the springs as a complete kit from PI, looks good and the ride comfort isn't comprimised
    Angel it's easy enough to do the springs as one stage then the shocks as another unless you can do them all at once bud

    Literally the best upgrade for the car was putting in some Eibach pro-kit springs. A lot tighter cornering and a LOT more grip.
