    Default GSI Suspension

    Hi folks,

    Need to get some valuable info from other members who may have already "been there, done that"!

    I had my car in with vx last week for a winter safety check and they noticed that the NSF spring was broken. After being quoted £185 to replace it i thought i may aswel look for a complete lowered kit, on searching the net and reading posts on this site i'm still very much undecided. I have been advised that the standard suspension on my car is the "sport" suspension?? I'm keen to get this sorted asap as i know i'm taking a chance driving it the way it is.


    So my query's are:
    • How much should i lower by
    • What kit would give me best ride height / handling / affordability
    • Do i need to consider my current "sport" suspension setup i.e would it cause any warning lights to be illuminated if i don't go with vx replacement parts
    Any other general recommendations are welcomed


    Thanks,

    In order that you've posted, all IMO:

    35mm as per standard

    Eibach springs plus Bilstein B4 shocks (other Bilstein's available)

    Mechanical bits such as suspension don't flag up warnings unless you've got IDS-plus and CDC as fiited at factory

    Just what he said.. buy Eibach -30mm springs ( another 15mm drop for you ) and then you'll be fine...
