    People seem to rave over the eibachs, thing they lower by 30mm as well, not sure on price, but i think there available on lmf vuaxhall.

    To have the factory ones fixed cost me £120 a corner on my old VX

    Have you all had the full alignment done, camber etc. I'm thinking of fitting some lowering springs on my Signum Design. I know that these are lower anyway as are SRI's. Will I be able to get away with just fitting the lowering kit as the difference in height will be less than on other models.
