    Default SRI Standard ride height

    Is anyone able to tell me (Or measure) the ride height of the sri cdti as standard? I'm convinced mine is def too high. From wheel centre to the arch it is 38cm. Anyone able to give me an idea if this is right or not
    Cheers

    I'm sure I've seen another thread not long ago where people posted their veccys ride heights for an sri before and after lowering
    I think it was something like 35cm rear and 37cm front (approx) for a standard sri

    Vehicle : Opel Vectra GTS

    Trim : Elegance

    Engine : 2.2 DTi 16V

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 75 000

    Default

    Mine is a bit higher too, but still too low, as proves the way my front bumper and spoiler crashes on the ground when going down bumps or ramps.

    I have 360 mm front and 355 mm rear (so still a bit higher at the front than the rear), which is actually too low considering the bad local roads (an streets), but the worse is the front suspension is way too soft. I'll probably fit lowering springs, not to lower the car (seems it can't get worse as now), but to stiffen the suspension.

    The 8x19" ET35 rims also probably apply too much torque, so the right springs for my settings (2.2 DTi with manual gearbox and air con) would probably be the heavier 3.0 CDTi ones (which are the correct replacement part numbers anyway, according to the maker's catalog). I'll try this first, then go for uprated (for 3.0 CDTi) Eibachs if I'm still impaired with too soft springs on our (very) bad roads.

    I assume they sent you the 1060+ kit, rather than they up-to 1060 kit?
