    Default suspension too hard

    hi i recently lowered the car by 40mm with PI springs its too hard its like the shocks are compressed too much as i dont get any bounce when i go over bumps or manholes the car moves sideways so thinking either put standard sri back or change shocks dont want to waste money on B4's if its going stay the same all of the bushes or drop links are ok dont know what to do thanks

    If you've lowered 40mm i.e an extra 25mm from the SRi suspension then you really need to do the dampers too so it's all matched up - the dampers will be shorter basically.

    Even then, you're going to have to accept that the ride is still going to be a fair bit firmer than the standard SRi suspension was. Whether you can live with that is a personal thing. Is there anyone near to you that's got the full -40mm kit (springs and dampers) that you could get a ride in first?

    As duncan said you need the full kit mate, the uprated dampers keep the springs in line so to speak

    You may as well have put in a couple of paper clips for all the good Pi are. Crap things.
