    confused Lowering by 40mm

    Hi, i want to lower my vectra 2.0DTi by 40mm but i do not know which lowering springs to go for! i've seen some springs but they only go as far as 30-35mm.
    also if i just change the springs does it make the handling of the car crap?
    could anyone help me or advice me on what to do and which ones to go for?

    no it wont be bad it will be a bit better but in the long run you should look into shocks as well ive still only the springs in my car and the car handles better but for the best setup i need to get myself shocks asap,h&r springs are about £160 hope this helps heres a pic of car so you can see how much they lower by
