    Default i want to lower my 04 2.2 sri advice please

    Hi all, I have had my 04 2.2 petrol Sri Hatchback now for little over a week and am really happy I bought it, anyway before christmas time i will be fitting Bk999 wheels as i think 19's are too harsh and expensive for tyres, so 18's are a good trade off, I want to lower it and previously always used Eibach springs where possible, my question is this, you know the sri is supposed to be lower than the say LS or club model if i was to buy Eibach springs from LMF would it even lower at all? has anyone with an sri lowered them on eibach and can i see a pic to see the kind of level it lowers by, i dont want dragging on the floor low just subtle.

    thanks in advance Mike

    p.s i will post some pics of the car so far when i have cleaned it at the weekend

    If you use Eibach springs it'll lower it about 10-15mm,not done it myself but seen other members who've done it to their cars,good luck m8....

    ahh that kind of answers my question then, 15mm is not worth bothering with really so eibachs are out the question, i would have liked 30mm drop, can anyone recommend any good springs thats will will drop it 30mm bearing in mind its a sri and i dont have funds for coilovers.

    thats looks really nice mate, thats the kind of the stance i want to go for, i think i will get the BK999s first and then a month or so later when funds allow get the eibachs as thinking about it even if it only lowers it 15mm or so the ride quality is going to be better anyway, i notice you got the spoiler i want as well.

    Nice car, I really like that!!
    What grade window tints are they?
    And what is on the rear 1/4 window, is that body coloured to match the car?

    none of the windows are tinted, they are standard, just the camera angle light conditions although the 1/4s are tinted with the mirror tints.
