    Whats the difference between...

    Whats the difference between my sxi suspension and the sri turbo/gsi suspension set up?
    Will the gsi suspension fit mine? Is it worth it or are they fairly similar?

    They are the same apart from having different spring and shock absorber ratings to suit the weight of the car.

    TBH you'd gain nothing by swapping

    GSI/SRI Springs are harder than SXI ones.

    Raised my 1.8 CDX front end about 15mm lol, even though the springs were shorter.

    they are the same height when fitted to the correct car, but have different weight allowances due to the heavier ZLET,

    I think SRI 2.0/2.2 and ZLET springs are the same.

    SXIs being small block for lower weight.
