    Default Suspension Conversion

    I need some help please, I have a design with standard suspension and want to lower it to SRI/SXI standard level. I need to find out if apart from the springs whether I have to change the dampers and adjust the camber etc. Is there anybody who has done this change and what problems did you find or am I being to cautious?

    To get the same setup as the SRi you'll need to change springs (as they're lower) and dampers (as they're uprated i.e stiffer). Afterwards you'll then need to get the alignment, camber etc. done to take into account the different setup.
