The vxr Axel weights are about the same as the diesels( 1.9 having about 30-50 kg more kver the front) so right right and comfort with them are the same even with the heavy diesel

I've heard that sri's are 10/15mm lower than like a club, so if I get 30mm lowering springs will that lower a club 30mm and a Sri 20/15mm?

spending on the mileage of the car it could be advised as tired shocks will give you a bouncy ride, I uprated mine when they were done but that was more due to wanting to uprate them than a necessity.

Uhm , when i go onto eibach website and select my car it won't show me any springs available for the car.
Cheapest on ebay sportline is £153 , is that about right ?

Sounds about right.

The main thing to consider when buying them is the front Axel load, as there's 2 sets of springs, one for cars with an Axel load if 960kg or less and one with more( turbo petrols and 1.9 diesels)

I have started going through descriptions and only this one matches actually my engine.
