    Default advice on springs and shocks please!!!

    I will need to replace my shocks soon so wiil do the springs too as they're original oem (rubbish). just wondering what is the best repacement in terms of quality and price -there is a recession you know .

    basically i dont want to lower as my insurance company seem to punish severely for mods and they check everything if i have a claim- gits!!!

    I just want good handling and ride quality for a sensible price!! Mad i know but I know someoone will have worked it out already- after all- we all think the same way about keeping the cash

    what you got standard?

    i would fit a full irmscher set up but that costs alot.

    so just get some eibach springs as they are the same as the irmy ones any way.

    they really are good springs, better handling than the SRi / GSi stuff but more comfortable as well

    Fitting you're looking at 3hrs labour and i'm sure the mods will fit the replacement springs,they'd have to be the same to fit......
