    Lowering my SRi

    Looking for views for the best way to lowering my sri whether to go for just springs or go for the kit and what would be the best ride height would be?

    depends on the drop but anymore than 40mm i'd recommend getting a full kit unless you don't mind a harsh ride.

    eibach are decent springs and ride is still comfortable on standard shocks - lower by 30/30mm or 50/30mm.

    koni or bilstein shocks with eibach or h&r springs would be my choice.

    Given you'll be the same as me (SXi and SRi share the same suspension at 20mm drop standard over normal Astra MK4's), I'm toying between Eibach's at 30mm drop all round at ~£120 or Jamex at 40mm all round for ~£70. Eibach would, for thee and me, only give an additional 10mm drop and the Jamex a 20mm drop.
