    With Macpherson struts the whole unit should come off the car as one, then compress the spring and then undo the top nut. Would think the vec the same as all the others I have done?

    Thats them all fitted, just on the standard SRi springs the now Spikey. Was meant to get Koni springs but was a problem with the order, so will get them at a later date.

    So how low does it sit? What's the ride like? Does it go round corners like it's on rails?

    Its sitting about the same as before because its the same springs. Will change them soon, probably get Koni springs. Not had the chance to take it out for a spin yet
