    Vehicle : Vec C

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 cdti 16v

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : loads

    Default in for a rough ride

    hard to describe but here goes}
    basically had a snapped spring on rear ended up changing full set for apex 35mm drop .
    car is vec 1.9 cdti 16v sri springs are fitted correct way up
    and correct load for axles.
    problem is o/s/f is very stiff almost no bounce
    i did notice on removing springs on front there were 2 different spring sizes.
    i know the factory sri shocks are fine for these springs unsure about standard shocks
    could it be that in the past it has had a standard spring and shock fitted on o/s/f and would this be my problem of the shock bottoming out due to not enough travel.
    or anything else
    cheers guys
