    Suspension Question

    Well having just got my new car im wanting to drop it a bit but im pretty clueless. It has the 16" vauxhall alloys on it and i need an idea of whether i need a whole new kit or just the springs and i also need to know how much i should be dropping it because i dont want it to look crap with the rims that are on it.

    Thanks in advance!

    All depending on how far you wanna go 400m with be safe on standard shocks but any lower and you want to change the shocks for shorter versions to handle the drop, but its always recomended to upgrade the shocks as your handaling will be much improved, so really it all comes down to, if your after the looks or the performance aspect of modding.

    40mm Front and Rear? .... How much is this likely to set me back with shocks? plus I cant fit shit to my car so how long would it take a mechanic to fit?

    The rears would be quite easy, wouldnt take a mechanic long to do at all I was charged £25 quid a side to do my springs. probebley half a day max I reckon. As for price If you join the group buy, monday I will try to get in touch with PVD to see how much it would come to and how the payments would have to be made and I will post it on the group buy thread.
    Unless Mat has to speak with PVD as he arranged the group buy offers with them.

    As far as Im aware you get these wheels when you have the prodrive styling pack from the main dealers as Every prodrive sri I have seen has come with these wheels.
    But the new sri does have similar wheels but in a 16". Vaux had to branch awawy from the sxi abit as they were far to similar spec, and barley noticeable from first impresions.
