OK some of you may think I'm lazy or w/e but in truth I have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to ordering parts and so on...
my car is 2003 SXI Z16XE and I'm looking for front shock absorbers and rear springs for a cheap price...lol
Also not sure on this but is it true that the SXI comes with a stiffer and lower set up (10-15mm) than the standard 1.6 8v/16v club and so on and if so does that I mean I defo can't just order some springs and shocks for 1.4/1.6?
Basically I've asked a friend of mine who is a mechanic and hes offering to do the front shockers (but keep old springs) and put new springs on the rear for £200 all in including labour.
is that an OK deal? they'll apparently be standard parts using my reg for part no's.
if not can someone point me in the right direction, I think he'll also fit the parts if I source my own but wanting to know which is the best thing to do?
