Sadly some years ago, I bought some PI springs for a 9000 turbo, they only stayed on the car for about 2 weeks. They were hopeless .

The fronts were shorter and stiffer, the backs were standard length and WAY softer than standard. The claimed drop in ride height was 30-35mm, but in practice this turned out to be 55-60mm i.e. almost no suspension travel left. They felt very 'racy' with no apparent roll (because the car sat on it's bumpstop at very little movement) but on real bumpy open roads they were useless as you were pitched off line by the bumps so there was no cornering gain unless you were on a billiard table.

Only any good for going as far as the chipshop and posing with the novaboys.
