    Default Lowered the Vectra today

    I bought some used SRi shocks and new Supersprint 45mm lowering springs.

    Front before


    After


    Rear before


    After (Crappy pic)


    Oops.


    Mid change


    Removing the nut from the front strut.


    Only problem now is the drivers front spring twangs a bit when turning lock to lock. It didn't do that with the old springs and shocks on though and the bearing seemed pretty free. I'll have to whip it off again to check all is right.

    Thanks Steve.

    There's alot needs doing to it to 'make it mine' lol.

    It got a wash earlier and has revealed some scrapes and dings.

    I may get the mop out tomorrow and give it a right good buffing if the weather stays good.
