    Default Lowering the Signum

    Hi all, will be looking at lowering the Siggy soon.
    Just wanting opinions as to the best set up and how far to lower.
    30/40 mm?
    Bilsteins / Spax / konis?
    Which springs?
    Wanting to spend appx £350
    Also, is it worth poly bushing?
    Strut brace?

    How far to lower is entirely up to your personal taste.....

    You don't necessarily need to change the dampers, the standard ones are up to the job if you're only going down to -30mm.

    Bilstein have been used by several members on here with no problems, but the Koni FSD's are apparently superb. If you're changing the dampers you may as well do the bushes while they're off although i'm not sure if you'd notice any real difference if you did it all the same time.

    Strut brace - yep, the people who have them reckon they really help the car's handling.

    I've got Eibach springs with the standard SRi shocks, and although you can hardly see the difference in height (from -20mm to -30mm), the ride and handling are soooo much better.

    I'd say go for Eibach springs and a strut brace, and leave the dampers for now.
