    Default GSI Vs SXI suspension

    Jus a quick question what is the GSI suspension better than the SXI's? Seen a full set of springs and dampers on Flea bay only covered 8000 miles, jus wondered if it was any better than mine and the price its going at is pennies compared to a new set.

    so far £45 all in. But like he said its prob better going for the eibach or similar that are new rather than sticking a used set on.

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Default

    Plus aren't the GSi's set up is matched to the cars weight? There are many engine variants in the SRi but I'm sure each weight has a set up to match.

    Yep, you'll need to check what your front axle weight is compared to a GSi - they need to be in the same range otherwise the suspension will be too high/low.

    I can't off the top of my head remember how a 1.9 compares to a GSi for front axle weight. Have a look at your plate inside the drivers B pillar. There will be a few line of numbers - it's the one with 1 - before it.

    I had a 04 plate Vec SXi, just after they started to make them look like the SRi and fit sports suspension. I was under the impression its the same suspension as the SRi/GSi? Only difference I thought was the wheels - SXi are 16's.
    I wouldnt bother spending any money unless you can confirm there is a difference and will see some benefit.

    I believe it's the same as in it lowers it the same amount. But given that the GSi is only a 3.2 engine, and an SRi can be a number of different engines, the weight rating will be different for any SRis with lighter engines - basically what Rushy said.

    So would the suspension on my 3.0 (being the heaviest Vec) be different than a smaller engine? I didnt realise they had different load ratings for different engines.
