    I think that is quite normal m8, most cars (not just Vec's or SRi's) are like that for some reason or another ?

    Prehaps the load on the front doesn't change much. I imagine if the car was full of people and the boot full that the rear suspension would be set lower, but wouldn't have much effect on the front. Just a guess...

    Dont know why, but when Andy (Admin) fitted SRi springs to his Elite, the car levelled out wonderfully - maybe the shocks are to blame?

    Funny that! I'm looking out the office at my face lifted version and its the same, slightly lower at the back by approx 10-15mm.#

    Wish It was never mentioned its got me looking at the b***** thing now in a different way.

    Of course, us Signum owners have to be different!!

    Looks like mine sits a bit lower at the front than the back! (pic is with the Irmscher suspension on). I'd have to have a look at the car to see if it actually does!
