    always lookin for a reason, lol.

    at the time they were £780 i think. I was after a set of FK's, as i had them on my old corsa'b' and liked them alot. but FK were still developin them at the time.

    good thing about KW's tho is that u can get spare parts like spring seat, caps, shock cartridges, so they can pretty much be fully rebuilt.

    £780

    my budget was about £500

    i set myself a budget of 2k to sort out wheels, suspension and exhaust.

    fk coilovers fit within that budget. there were a couple of vectra's on this site had them, and from what they said, they liked them, cant remember who they were now tho.

    uve got a nice budget for the wheels.

    How much lowering would you appreciate it's ok with the stock shock absorbers? 2, 3, 4 mm? How much without replacing the shocks too?
