    Default Reducing body roll

    I've got an Elite on it's standard setup and I seem to get a lot of body roll. Roundabouts in particular are bad, but there's a few easy 70mph bends on the way to work that i know the car has no problem gripping they just become uncomfortable because of the roll. I'm not bothered about how low it is, or improving any other handling characteristic, just reducing roll.

    Can I simply replace my springs and leave the original shockers?
    Would I see a significant improvement just swapping for SRI srpings?
    Will I retain full warranty cover if I use SRI springs?

    with the sri springs you will see a dramatic difference...if u want to go the whole hog then springs and shocker set..but may find it a little 'hard'...and then costly
    or you could also try a strut brace too which will stiffen the car too...

    best bet first is the sri springs and see how u get on with them..
