    i lowered my car only a few weeks ago , standard shocks (exclusiv model) by 45mm no probs, good cross between more sporty handling and comfort, have lowered other cars with shocks and springs and its ok for a week or two but starts getting on yer nerves if its too hard,,,,

    Which springs did you use?

    I have an SRi that I would like to take about 30 mm out of the ride height.

    Thanks Dave.

    I'll look out for the Cobra springs. My estate needs loweing to compliment my wheels, and the ride height you have is what I am looking for.

    Got any more pics?

    Mine are on Flickr

    Nice wheels

    Seeing those pics just confirms that I like the ride height of your motor.


    Seen Cobra springs at Europerformance. Is that where you got yours?
