    Default Elite to SRI springs

    Is there much difference in terms of ride quality and handling? I know SRI will be a tad lower.

    My shocks are kaput and the car is also sitting at a slight angle ( I assume because last owner replaced one spring only) so I want to replace the springs as well (not eibachs)

    I know Bilstein B4's are the shocks to go for so i'll order a set of those.

    Mine failed at approx. 16 months old. Both started weeping oil, and one of them was as soft as a fresh turd.

    I changed over to Sachs (which were previously the OEM fitted ones) and I found the ride and comfort level far better than when I had the B4's fitted.
