    Default Had my car lowered today!

    Also had the steering rack looked at (had a bit of play), new tie rods and track ends (both sides), front and rear ARB, and rear control arms and new springs! I think the Design was 15mm lower than the standard Signum, like the SRI. So its now on 35mm front, 25mm rear PI springs...

    Got to say she handles like a dream now I've had all these bits tidied up! Nice and stiff, corners much better, and the steering wheel isn't throwing a wobbly every 2 seconds! LOL.

    I was happy with the cost, £322 all in. I know a lot of this could have been done via the How2's...but I think I nearly fainted looking at some of them! I simply do not have the time or ability to safely do it.

    Looking at the pics, maybe some 18" BK999's would fill the arches better...??? Next thing to save for!

    (I've just thrown some cold water over the car to give her the apperance of being clean LOL)

    She handles great! Can really "throw" it around with out her wobbling like a whale! Its amazing how little things can really change the feel and ride... I was expecting it to be more of a hard ride, but its not! She actually doesn't mind roundabouts now... (She told me so LOL)

    Looks great mate, its amazing how much tighter they can feel when certain bits are replaced.
    Seems like you got a reasonable price on the work too. Top job.
