    Default Spring Harshness

    I was wondering if there's much difference in the spring harshness of different manufactureres.
    Would there be much difference lowering an SRI cdti on koni, eibach, h&r or pi springs when fitted to B4 dampers, just to make sure there's enough clearance?

    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Trim : SRi XP T Saphirre Black

    Engine : z20net

    For sure, dropping an SRi on Eibachs is not harder. They are progressive springs, so tend to drive normally, but in a hard corner they are much more effective!

    On mine, the only thing that made ride harder was going from 17s to 19s. The Eibach springs were hardly noticable.

    This experience with Eibach bares out on my last 3 Vectra B V6s, and my sierra cosworth before that.

    Have APEX lowered 35mm combined with 19" alloys and B4 Bilsteins and to be honest the ride is no where near as harsh as i was expecting it to be.

    I was expecting to feel every stone and bump but it's no where near that bad.
