    Default which springs?

    i want to change the springs on my motor reason being i want to loose that 4x4 look and not the ride. i recon 15- 20mm should surffice, so i just have a couple of questions:

    can i fit sri springs without changing the dampers?

    are there any aftermarket springs i can get with the ride hight i am after?
    ive tried researching this but i can find only the rock hard 30mm+ lowering ones. (i suffer from irritatingrattlephobia)
    any suggestions?

    Lee, Im swappingmy elite springs for SRI ones, and getting them fitted by Gary3306 on here, on Sunday. They should lower it 20mm but keep the ride quality ok, well, just like an sri really lol.

    I bought a set of PI sports lowering springs for my 2.2 for about £90 from performance products. I've had to buy new shocks as well now as the standard shocks on my LS just do not work with them, far too soft, might be down to them having done 50k and just being too old. New Koni FSD shocks going to be fitted next Wednesday.
