    Default Lowering on the sri.

    Hi folks, I find the standard Vauxhall springs very hard, my son has got a vectra b and that is very low but still takes bumps better than mine.
    I don't feel the back needs lowering at all and the front is higher than the back of the car.
    Could I fit some front springs just to drop a bit and leave the backs?
    Found apex to be great when low and the sons is on jamex.
    The overall ride is very harsh and it's not that low at the front.
    ty folks.

    To be honest mate, if you're looking for the handling to improve, better looks and comfy ride then you need to get yourself a set of Eibachs. I have them on mine and they are amazing

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Don't bother with Eibachs if you actually want to lower the car, as some find it looks no different. The rear arches on a Vec are lower than the front, so the gap at the back will always be less there, but the car naturally sits a tad lower at the front.

    I have -45mm PI's on mine, handles great but maybe too low for some (I love it though).
