    Default Lowering springs

    hello i am new to this forum. Just wanted to see if any of you have any recommendations of lowering springs. I have got a vectra sri xp2 estate and i want it to sit fairly low. I have seen a set of FK springs for the estate on ebay but it only lowers the car 35mm not sure if this would make a huge different due to it being an sri.
    Would be grateful of any advice thanks ryan

    The standard SRI springs are 15mm shorter than standard.

    Eibachs are about 30mm in total (so a further 15mm on what you have at present), FK's if 35mm will be 20mm shorter than what you have.

    Personaly I will not consider anything else other than Eibach Pros. Great ride, improved handeling and german engineering...

    Ebay is the cheapest I have found for them direct from Demon Tweeks. If you find them there then call them you dont even need to bother with paypal etc as they can take card payment and will meet the price shown on ebay.
