    Default What springs i need to gewt for my car

    Can some one help and advise me on which springs i need to get for my car. Im not sure about the weight on the front axle as some springs say a maximum load up to 1000kg on the front axle. I have the vectra c 1.9tdci sri 150bhp on a 2005 pre-facelift.

    What springs would be best as i want great handling and also a great stylish look so low but not stupidly low .

    Thanks

    It all depends on the ride height you want your vehicle to have.

    If you don't want to lower it much, but sharpen up the ride then the Eibachs (upto -30mm) are the way to go, the upto 1060kg ones appear to be the ones to have (as the others leave the front a tad high), these will lower your car between 0 - 15mm.

    If you want to actually make the car 'lower' then the PI Springs (60-274) (-45mm) are the ones for you, they sharpen up the road, don't make it too harsh and lowers the car about 30mm which IMHO is spot on for the Vectra C.
