    Default 30mm or 40/45 drop? Pics Please :)

    Im going to get some lowering springs but keep with the 17" sri wheels. Would love 18" but can't afford them just yet.

    Has anyone got some examples of both drops on a facelift sri to give me an idea on how it will look before I go ahead.

    Many thanks

    From my research about lowering, i have read that if you go lower than 30mm you will need shorten dampers. If you stay with 30mm (15mm lower than SRi standard) you can still use the original dampers.

    I had PI -45mm springs on SRi shocks and they were fine, think -45mm on non-SRi shocks would be a gamble though.
