    not worried about warranty then forget Irmsher,

    were doing a group buy of FK stuff here http://www.m1gst.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1557 very good quality gear

    billies are fine for handling as are eibach, cheaper options are Apex and GMax

    insurance wise most companies will only charge £0-£30 for suspension, if you fit Irmsher stuff I wouldn't even bother telling them.

    18" and 40mm drop is fine, 60mm will require uprated dampers

    Irmscher kits are around £497.00 a suspension kit from vauxhall. And around £227.00 retail for the springs from vauxhall. I can do the suspension kits for £468.00 and spring kits for £207.00 . Most insurance companys don't mind suspension kits and some don't charge at all :?, eibach , H&R, KW, Fk are other makes that are very good and cheaper if your insurance let you
