    Default Uprated springs (but NOT lowered)

    This might be a long shot and I know this fly's against the trend on this site but I'm after uprating the springs on my Signum without lowering it. The Signum on standard suspension can get a bit wallowy which I'd like to address and i don't really want to lower the car. The springs I've looked at from Koni, PI, Eibach, all lower the car by 30mm. Is there anything out there or in Vauxhall's inventory that can do the trick ?

    Please don't think ill of me for not wanting to lower the car.

    Dunno about uprated springs that dont lower but if i was you mate i'd get the Eibach springs, they have a good reputation. They will minimize the body roll & give a sportier drive, are designed to work with standard or uprated dampers, plus they are not expensive. Yeah it will sit lower but that, imo, is a good thing

    If you have a big wad of dosh you could get the Koni FSD's dampers that Spikey has, they're designed to work with o.e. springs. Then you'd get improved handling but no or minimum reduction in ride height

    I had the VXR springs on my Estate mate and they only lower it by around 15-20mm MAX.

    I have the estate and need to load up alot of kit.

    On the way to PVS we had 4 big lads in the car, rear FULLY loaded with lots of beer, tents, food etc. And no rubbing in the slightest.
