    SXi/SRi spec are 20mm lower than standard.

    Not too sure about 3 door springs on a 5 door, think it all really depends on engine size weight of the car etc.

    Yup, should be fine mate!

    Few pics for comparison.

    Black car is mine, SXi on 20mm lowered standard springs, silver car was the missus, Club on normal springs, not lowered at all.

    Is a big difference in all honesty, made a difference to the drive and ride as well.

    PM brennan247, I was going to buy some 20mm standard springs from him once for the silver one, but the missus sold her car so didn't bother!

    Might need to double check though coz his are 3 door ones, might need to find out if they will fit onto a 5 door.
