    Before i purchase 30/30 springs.

    I am looking at buying some ebiach 30/30 springs for my 2.2 hatch hopefully picking them up this sat from LMF.

    But before i get them i have a couple of questions.

    1. I have to go over some seriously high speed bumps near my work will my car with OE shocks and sri T kit clear them ok?

    2. I do alot of mway driving is it going to make it a real hard ride?

    3. Roughly how much for fitting around £50 - £60?

    Thanks guys!

    Imo even with the irmscher front splitter at standard heigh you wil lcatch speed bumps.

    If you are coming off a steep heigh ect you can even catch the standard splitter.

    If you lower 30mm and you have that bumper imo you wil lcatch speeedbumps even at minimal speeds.

    The eilbach ride will only be slightyl firmer and the handling will be transformed.

    Im not lowering mine because i cant get to the beaches ect or into work if i lower it if i have a front splitter.

    i have a gsi with standard bumper ,just lowered it on 30/30 eibachs, wish i had gone for the 30/45 kit now.

    i have to go over a monster of a speedbump in the hospital where the misses works, 3 passengers, no probs.

    p.s they are really easy to fit.

    Yeah thats why i think will go for the 40mm all around kit cos i know i will kick myself if i get the 30/30 kit allthough i most likely will wreck the bumper going 40/40
