    they will be a harder ride, and a lot stiffer than the standard SRi setup..the shocks will be okay for a while, but may start to bottom out if you really load the car up..really -30mm is the max on SRi dampers.. for -45 springs ( from standard ride height) you'd be better off looking at shorter shocks
