    Default Silly Question Time

    Ok gonna make a **** of myself here but its just something i have thought of ( yep am bored)

    Lowering springs say -30mm for talking sake are -30mm lower than standard springs, but as the SRI is 15mm lower than standards, if i put a set of -30mm on mine does that mean it will only drop by -15mm

    see where am coming from

    yes paul your right ,it will only lower it by 15mm .i think you can put the even lower ones on as you have the sri and the shocks are smaller .think 45 mm then it would lower it 30mm .khalid

    paul ive lowered mine ,as you know it is a elite so the ride was a bit soft but i put the eibach springs from lmf and they lowered the car and stiffened the handling .if anything the rear now settled is low but the front seems a bit high something to do with the way the arch is shaped .think the car will look ace get it done. khalid
