    Default New springs needed - what to do?

    seeing as my current springs supplied to me are the wrong type for my cdti i am now looking out for some new springs...

    just wondered what people have got and how much they cost...

    i am seriously looking at some eibachs - however the guys at LMF say it will only lower my car by 30mm - plus they said as its an SRi and already 15mm lower than standard it'll actually only lower it by 15mm - seems pretty cr@p to be honest!!

    anyone else got views/experience that could help me?




    (i also have a set of G-max springs for a 2.0, 2.2 and 3.0 models for sale as they dont fit my 1.9 - looking for £60 plus delivery)

    You have a PM from me on the earlier query - It's not just me trying to punt my springs, but Eibach's are generally conservative - dropping a size is recommended. Spoons for one knows the suss...
