    Default New Veccy SRi: Spring Problem HELP!

    Hi Folks,

    Finally got my 06 Veccy.
    Dealer has replaced both front springs, but to me something seems a miss.

    Ride height isn't correct, as its much higher at the front, than it is at the back.

    Take a look at the attached pictures.

    Im thinking of going back the dealership, as im wondering have they put standard springs on the front, rather than SRi sports ones.

    If you could give feedback and let me know whether im going mad or not, id appreciate it!

    I'd say that it looks as though they might have - even with springs settling, that looks too high for me

    My 1.8SRi is higher at the front, but yours looks a little too high.

    (hard to see from that pic, lighting isn't good)

    Does anyone know the part number for the correct SRi springs? (Front)

    I'll need this, becuase i can use it against their service invoice which they were meant to be posting to me.

    Just been out and looked at my Dad's SRi, the springs have a smaller, and more compressed appearance.

    The ones on mine are much wider, and the distance between each coil is also dramatically higher.

    The *******s, im going to have to be careful not to lose my rag over this, worst customer service i've ever had!
