    You can get Eibach Pros (30mm) lowering all round. However because yours is an SRI it is already lowered 15mm than standard Veccy's so it will lower it by 15mm. You can get them for any model

    That is another option

    Yep, LMF sell them and you are looking at about £160 ish plus delivery (all round). However, as ssmotoboyz said check your axle weights first and make sure that LMF do them

    Pardon my ignorance - I am sure the acronym has long since become common usage and everyone knows who they are apart from me - but who are LMF?
    Please post a web address!
    Thanks
