    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160)

    Year : 2010

    Mileage : 26000

    Default

    Anything over 35mm should be on shorter shocks!! Upto 35mm will be fine on standard but they will wear out quicker!!

    An Sri is 15mm lower than standard so 40mm lowering springs will only drop your car 25mm,should be fine m8,i've just fitted 45mm/40mm Pi lowering springs on standard shocks and a few on here have done the same,hth.........
