    suspension, possibly hydraulic?

    Hi guys,

    going on from everyones comments on lowering etc, im going to do it, but as some may know i dont want to sacrafice the ride quality,

    the only realistc way i can see round this is an adjustable set up, but electronic, and as far as i know this means hydraulics...

    so, where can i get prices for hydraulic suspension kits????

    everyday driving the car would be at a decent height then when im in town or parked up i can drop the car to the floor or potentially a track day or two

    any help/info would be much appreciated, i do realise its gonna be expensive but if thats the onyl way ill be happy then im gonna have to do it

    From what i've heard, using hydraulic's is a ultra stiff ride and not very comfortable.. They look good but don't give.

    Astra Mad on here has hydraulics i think, may be an air set up come to think of it, but still may be worth giving him a shout?

    Have fun forking out around the £1500 mark for it to be done... Personally i'd buy a decent set of coilovers and just drop it untill it gets to that point where you want it from an everyday drive point of view, having the wheels sitting in the arch's from dropping on air/hydraulic you need a certain kind of car for imo.

    yeah hydraulics is the last thing you want... air bags may be better.
