    Default Front Springs - How Much?

    The missus has had some strange metallic knocking sounds from the front offside for some time now. Today I had to replace the starter motor so I thought I would look into the knocking, found the problem pretty quick!!!

    In the suspension seat I found about a 5inch piece of spring, great!

    So a I have a few questions!

    • Can I replace the springs without having to alter the geometry (i.e. remove shock from turret using springs compressors)
    • How much are stock springs?
    • Would a 2.2 Irmscher SRI come already with lowered suspension (i.e. if I buy aftermarket which lower by 35mm, they wont drop the ride height)?
    • Any recommendations on aftermarket kits?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the replies! No warranty on car, all DIY!

    The car is a factory 2.2 Irmscher, aftermarket springs I'm pretty sure will be cheaper. I dont want the car sitting any lower than it currently is as it already does not like curbs n stuff thus the question on whether its already lowered (as advertised 35mm drops will not drop the car an additional 35mm)

    best bet will be to get the ebaich springs as they only drop to 30mm

    Glynn, they will only drop if you do not have already lowered factory suspension... Do you know if the 2003 2.2 Irmscher comes with lowered suspension?

    Eibach springs are around £140 for the set m8. Around 25-30mm drop on an SRi.

    The boys are jesting as Irmscher have never EVER made a car! They make body kits and styling accessories for Vauxhall's (and now Puegeots) but they ain't car makers
