    Can't comment on the N.I. issue, but you can indeed use the 30mm-drop springs on your existing shocks and wheels.

    Is there a reason for all our vectra's springs breaking, what mileage has these cars got. My front 2 springs are broken, alright i have done 97000 miles but my dads vectra has only done 22000 miles and his front 2 springs have just snapped, surley vx would recall or is is just really sh*tty springs they are using.

    Its just really annoying, all my money seems to be fixing things on my car, its not until you start fixing your own car that you see how bad qulity some of the vx parts are. I suppose the only good part of my car is the Garrett turbo :-)
