Got me new springs today thanks to Gaz. Installed this afternoon and damn do they make a difference! The handling has changed from "fast vauxhall omega" to "super fast MR2" mode. Well chuffed.

Every silver lining does of course have it's cloud - I found out my front right shock is bent at the top, so will have to replace.

Recommendation please.

Actually I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions re: brand and pricing of shocks.

Paul Hackley on gtr.co.uk has suggested I can get vspec gtr shocks from middlehurst for about £50 each which seems quite good.

:D

Alex,

Gaz sorted me a set of 4 Eibachs springs. £200 odd I think.

Not sure that GTR bits will fit a GTS. Springs are different and I am sure Mark at Abbey said suspension parts not inter changeable

I have got Trust dowmax waiting to go on and they drop it 25mm and 30 mm back/front.
Dont think the insurers need to know, they ask too many questions anyway
