    Default Thinking of Eibach Pro Kit?

    Thinking of improving the suspension a bit on my 2008 1.9 cdti 150 SRi.

    Would fitting http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Eibach-Pro...item2ebc8fa3d6 on their own make a big difference or would I need to spend some mega bucks and change the shocks as well?

    Thanks in advance

    I have the eibach pro kit on mine n tbh its great as is, drops the car nicely, bit better in the corners but at over 2 ton lets be honest its never guna be a go kart in the bends. I had it fitted at demon tweeks too, pricey but as i'm not overly confident with suspension, n lazy at the best of times was well worth it, in n out in no time and a very friendly place overall

    Thanks for the reply. Do you find the 'ride' a lot harder than the standard SRi springs?

    I'm hoping to fit them myself (with a little help from my neighbor)!!

    Thanks again, Dave.

    Hello m8 I got the same kit just the springs on my Sri I think there brilliant made the ride softer from the standard Sri ride , you,ll be surprised how much more comfortable these springs make our journey m8 plus they still hold the road like a go kart so it's a win win situation ..

    Have a look at the H&R springs, they are heavier made than the eibachs and sit a bit better too. I had eibachs on my Vectra for 6 years and they were good apart from one if them broke, but this was covered under the 5 year warranty from eibach..

    Didn't on mine, firmed the ride up but was still more than comfortable. I don't think you would be disappointed if you bought them ;-)

    Had these on an Astra Coupe... as said, it actually improved the ride comfort. It was a nice drop for astra and it handled much better (all with the standard shocks)
