    confused Lowering.....

    I know theres like, a million threads on this already, but tryin 2 get a straight answer when looking around so many posts is confusing.
    After finally deciding to keep my Veccy, i have now come down to a few things that I want to do to it. Ive decided to start with lowering, now, everyone agrees i think that when a car is lowered, it looks so, so much sweeter. Ive seen a few on here and they look great. I have an SRi, currently with the standard wheels, but i want to drop it. After sifting through some of the posts, Eibach and PI springs pop up the most. I'm not a master in this division as i have never lowered a car before. Anyone point me in the right direction of which springs to get? And also is there anything else i need to get as ive heard that upgraded springs work fine with standard shocks etc etc. Thanks guys

    well the sri sits 20mm lower than a normal vec so a 30 mm will be more than enough fella so pi or eibach springs will be fine

    tracking would be a good idea to have it checked and re-adjusted if needed and most fast fit centres will do it for you. the springs will be your first mod and good luck fella

    I'm hoping this is an easy enough mod to do on my own! As i'm against paying people to do it when I have my own 2 hands. Any 'How to's' anywhere that u know of?

    all depends if you have any spring clamps if not most fast fit centers should charge about £60 to fit your own spring kit
