    Mine dropped by probably 40-45mm on the rear with the Eibach Pro 30mm springs.... Your is probably 5-10mm lower than mine all round.

    As standard they do seem to sit high at the back.
    I think it the Vecc was just designed to carry a lot of weight in the boot.

    the back springs were not the same shape as the ones that came off the new ones were small at the bottom and got larger at the top ( hope that makes sence) they were also about 1 1/2 - 2 inches shorter

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP NAV

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Default

    For a 35mm drop (or 20mm in terms of an SRi) that is very low indeed, could be wrong springs (spring weights) but I think the back ones for all Vecs are the same (excl estate) I'm sure someone would correct me if I'm wrong.

    Some pics of another Vec with Apex springs here.. http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showpo...82&postcount=4

    ..and another... http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showpo...59&postcount=1
