i put 1.6 suspension on a 2ltr?????
it would most probably be a rough ride and hit any bump really hard, as the 2.0 engine is a bigger engine than the 1.6

ive read loads of times the sxi and sri are 20mm lower, but where do you get this from?
From the fact that it was fitted with 20mm lowered springs from the factory.

Try it and let us all no..
is there an actual real world question here rather than a daft simple one liner?
you have a 2.0 SRi Im guessing by the user name?
You have probably got some 1.6 suspension to put on (why I cant imagine)
wondering if it would fit? handle? etc etc
YES it would fit - all suspension components are iinterchangeable on the mk4
whether it would handle (well) is another matter. Depends how old the 1.6 kit is, what specification it is, OE or aftermarket etc etc
Remember the 2.0 bigblock engine is a lot heavier than the small block 1.6 so the spring and damper weights will differ for each engine therefore then handling characteristics or indeed any other aspect such as ride height etc can not be guaranteed,
Last point.... WHY?
