    Default Raising the ride...

    Am I mad for wanting to actually raise my car now?

    I'm just fed up at the moment or either scraping the front of the car on curbs when parking or having to go 5 mph over speed bumps and still getting the horrible crunch noise of the ARB's...

    Now, all this solid ice thats formed down here after the snow, its like I'm actually shovelling it out of the way for the cars behind! Grrrrr!

    SO anyway, thats the rant... as he opens a new tab and looks at ebay...Signum / Vectra C Estate...

    If yours is a sri, you can swap the springs for standard ones which would raise it 15mm, mine is standard and has no problems unless you are going to fast in a multistory or something!

    So on the standard Vx Signum Design shocks, I guess the same as Vec C SRI, 15mm drop, you can just replace the springs with standard? Are the dampers/shocks not any different? Harder ride etc?
