    Default lowering the vec tomorrow

    following my recent thread http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=99442 my car has been resprayed and i have decided to lower it instead of just replacing the broken springs. I am going to use apex spring, blistein b4s, new upper trailing arms, new drop links and new front top mount bearings ill take some before and after shots of it being resprayed and lowered so i should have a fun day tomoz
