I was thinking of getting tighter suspension for my car. They would so some good! The Corsa suspension is a bit spongy. But, I've found that alloy wheels with low profile tyres give the car all round better handling. My steel wheels with standard tyres were very spongy. Yeah go for them!;)

The german brands are meant to be good. Have a read of some reviews first & see what other people think before buying some suspension.

I don't reckon it would be that bad. Either way when you lower your car and uprate the suspension the ride quality will be comprimised. But it also depends on what you like. I prefer my car to have really firm suspension, you feel every bump in the road but I'm that used to it it doesn't bother me in the slightest.
Not only that but you will 100% notice a massive improvement in handling/cornering.

I highly recommend and highly rate upgrading from standard suspension. It is the first job I do when I get a new car.

You never know, they may just end up being quite good. Will definately be better than just springs though.

Also try searching for spirngs and shock absorbers seperate.
You may be able to get them cheaper that way.

just cause there cheap doesnt mean there **** they all have to be built to a standard, if you buying them for an everyday car that gets a wee kicking but nothnig mental then im sure they will be fine but not suited for the likes of the use on track etc

I don't think you will be disappointed with them.
