    Default Lowering springs for SRI

    Hello,

    What lowering springs can you put on the Diesel SRI shocks? How low can you go with those standard sri shocks.

    Thanks.

    I have just fitted a set PI Springs to my Sri estate, 30mm drop but only really lower sri about 15mm. Sits very nice now on my 19" snowies. Handles so much better... and more comfort as well. I've heard people dropping 40mm on here.

    As above do a search on here and numerous posts about it.

    Think i change the shocks as well to get the full benefit of the new lowering springs also saves time of putting new shocks in next time.
