    IMHO you get what you pay for. PI springs are usually at the budget end of the scale and do more for looks rather than handling improvements.

    Trusted names such as Eibach and H+R might be a little more expensive but they are well worth it.

    Pi tend to give weak handling, and the number of them I've seen rotted so much they snap isn't funny.

    GMax is probably the cheapest you should go. They're the better budget setup (and quite easy to get off Fleabay).

    we had pi springs on our corsa sport years ago, and yeah it was very low, handled great on backroads, but bounced about like a trampolene on all roads! surpose you get what you pay for, ive now use eibach's on the zaf gsi and they are great! and well worth the money..hope this helps abit
