    Default Suspension renewal advice please

    Hi all

    My 2006 1.8 Sri vvt is really feeling the bumps now. Done 101.5 k so looking to renew some parts.

    First off is lowering springs.

    Found PI 45/40 mm at 108 free delivery or Lo Springs for 79 quid all in.

    Im not looking for superb handling just an upgrade and a drop on a budget.

    Any ideas all. Are Pi or Lo okay for what I need?

    Need new shocks all round also but confused after looking for which ones I need so any help would be good.

    Also other suggestions as to what parts to replace would be good. Drop links / bushes etc. I know the names of these parts but no idea what they do or how to tell if they are worn or not.

    Many thanks

    Chris
