    i wouldn't fit Jamex springs.. i'd be fitting eibachs again....

    Both Mrs GSi and I run Eibach -30mm springs.. they stiffen up the handling no end ... they are dearer than the jamex, but you do get what you pay for....

    lowering will help with the skipping, but the ride will also get a teeny bit harder.. not dead hard thou..

    we run 18's and even at -30 the ride is very acceptable..

    As Above Eibachs all the way.They have lowered mine slightly and even with 18s they are not harsh.Jamex tend to crash and bang and not as good as Eibach for comfort.

    H&R springs are also great ones. I use them on my Vectra with Bilstein dampers
