    Trim : 19in snowflakes

    Engine : 2.0l turbo

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 50k

    Default lowering springs (any pics)

    Hi I am looking to get some lowering springs for my 2006 vectra sri but not sure how much to lower it. I wondered if anyone one has any pics of there cars lowered with 19in snow flake wheels so I can see what it would look like? 35mm or 45mm?
    Thanks Jon

    Is the SRI fitted with uprated shocks or anything. Or just lower springs?

    i wouldnt go any lower than 35mm on standard shocks as your going to shorten the life of your shocks

    Thanks.

    I take it u have an Sri?? The sri's are 15 mm lower than the more basic models so take 15 mm away from the sise u want to lower as for the 19's not to sure bud its a big car so I dont see any problems.
