    Default Uprated shocks or keep std SRI

    Just ordered a set of PI springs -45 front & -40 back, just wondering what the ride will be like with standard SRI shocks?? Nearly paid off my future wedding so let the mods begin!!! Looking to get some new rims in the next couple of months do people recommend 19's or is the ride better matched to 18's??

    Look at my siggy, thats -45mm all round with standard sri shox and 18s.

    EDIT: Just read your post properly lol. Ride is nice, can be harsh on rough roads but handles well. Not a massive improvement as only springs but definatly noticable.

    Ok cheers, does look a hell of a lot better! Think it will be a set of 18's due to future tyre prices!!! Unless of course I can find a good deal on 19's but doubt it very much!

    Pi = Painted Pubes.

    You'd be better of driving with no springs. Spent a few quid extra and get some Eibachs.
