    Default Vectra sri springs

    Hi, new to the forum. Just bought a cdti 150 sri and its a bit bouncy at high speed and front suspension sounds like the spring is loose. How much would it cost to replace all four springs and can you lower it a bit more or is it low enough? Any advice would be appreciated

    Your rattle is probably a broken spring (very common on the Vec-C/Signum)

    I and many others will recommend eibach springs, they will lower the car by 15mm and really firm up the handling with out being bone shaking. They are about 150-160 quid for a set of 4 but well worth the money

    I'm just going down this root, fed up with VX springs snaping

    The eibach springs cost £154.46 delivered
    spring sleve mod £2.16 from VX
    the fitting is going to around £120 for the full set fitted by a independent garage

    PS: It is usually the bottom coil that breaks

    Problem at the rear? Does it feel like the back is sliding out on bumps?
