    I got PI springs from Rally Design (a place in faversham..prob nowhere near u tho lol)...cost me bout £80 i think...I'd recommend getting shox as well if u really want to notice the difference in the handling....My old car had a full spax adjustable kit and there was no body roll at all....however i couldnt afford it for the C, so just got springs....its deffo an improvement to standard...but not as good as a kit with shox!!

    ive just bought sum jamex springs... which lower by 40mm but im putting them on my SRi when i get it so it will be on 16's not 17's. my mate had some ridiculous "60mm" ones on his SRi with 17's on and they didnt catch at first, but they do now so hes put his 16s back on... and that was just with me and him in the car (but he was hammerin it round a corner!) so i dunno mate, 30mm sound good
