    Default Lowering springs

    Right which lowering springs should i go for? I'm looking at the PI (45mm front and 40mm rear) or the Eibach (30mm all round).

    I need some advice on which people think are better and why. Will the Eibachs actually make the car look any lower (will only lower my SRI by 15mm)?

    Help

    How do you get on with your front splitter mate? Have you had any problems with it getting close to the floor on ramps etc...? What about the handling?

    on the 19"s its fine with the splitter,does not catch at all and there are lots of speed bumps by where i live.

    the handling is great, very sporty feel and its not to harse, if you want the looks as well as performance then go for these m8, you will love them

    Have been happy with Koni on mine, getting a bit fed up with speed bumps though cos I have to practically crawl over them or knock my teeth out lol !

    It sits about 15 mm lower than the standard SRI springs and it is noticeable.

    had PI springs fitted to my signum didn't look any different as I have the design which sits lower than other models anyway, the car is alot harder that is the only difference really. If you had another model then I should emagine you will see/feel the difference (only fitted them as I had a fractured spring and lowering springs are cheeper than standerd ones from vx) your sri wont realy look any different will just be harder ride, go for PI as they are cheeper, Eibach if you have cash to throw away lol

    Strange that, my SRI is lower and harder on the Koni springs ! handling is good but thinking about getting VX spring back on it for the better comfort.
