    Post Dropping my Signum 1.9cdti

    hi guys thinking of dropping my signum all standard parts still on in terms of dampers and suspension and springs

    was thinking of buying some lowering springs to drop it by 20-25mm would i get away with the standard dampers or would need to change them??

    will it effect the ride, is it worth it??

    please let me know guys much apreciated

    I dropped my vectra estate a couple of weeks ago, on eibach springs. Did it all myself with new track rod ends and drop links at same time as well as all new bolts from dealer. Around £300 all in. I am very impressed, car sits much better, wheels sit right in the arches. Ride is excellent, not rough, corners more positively and still comfortable even on 18" wheels. Had four wheel hunter alignment done, all camber still within specified parameters only toe needed doing due to new track rid ends. On standard shocks too.

    There is a recent thread I started with before and after pictures. Think vectra estate and signum suspension very similar.

    Would get some bought.
