Hi, I have an Omega with standard springs and shocks. I bought shocks and springs that came off a 2012 SSV that had only done 10,000kms... so they're like brand new. They are FE2.

My question is, will I get a good result (lowering) by swapping them onto my Omega? How much lower should I expect it to sit?

Also, because they came off an SSV wagon will they sit differently (and hopefully level) coming out of it and going onto an Omega?

thanks experts! :D :D

Lol wouldn't lower it much at all I would think not even noticeable. My advice would be maybe use those shocks cos they are reasonably new n get some lower springs to suit your desire, if your wanting to drop 30mm or 50 mm

I would think that they might even make your car sit higher because they came out of an SS which is a heavier car.

I installed SS FE2 spings on my sportwagon, along with KYB lowered shocks/struts (from GSL Rallysports) and it raised the front about 10mm, the lowered the back maybe 10mm. I then searched this forum and found about another 2-3 thread confirming the same thing.
The ride is better than stock but front just looks too high...
