I have had the old girl sat nice and lower (40mm front 30mm rear) on a set of lowering springs and standard 15" wheels for a while now, and whilst its made quite a difference, there is still a little too much body roll for my liking. What is the cheapest way of eliminating as much of this as possible? I was thinking about buying a set of lower priced sport shocks which should be stiffer, but will they work that much? Anything else that would do instead of shocks?

Funds are, as always, low! I dont need top end gear because I don't race her about too much.

:thumbsup

Better shocks will make a difference, if you are still on the original items then they will be pretty weak by now.

the roll is caused by the unloaded side of the car to lift, using shorter shocks and a stiffer anti roll bar will help.

if you jack your car up on one side and have a look at the gap between the arch and the tyre, you don't want a big gap what you see when you jack up your car on one side is what happens when you take a corner hard and fast, the less of a gap you can get the less of a roll the car will make.
