    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Physically they will fit.... But what hes saying is, the rear springs are designed to take the loading of an estate vehicle.... so your signum might be lighter on the rear end and thus end up in the air a bit more

    check the axle loadings for the correct spring rates.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The rear weight rating between the Signum/Estate & the Hatch/Saloon has a difference of approx 180kg... it could impair the handling quite a lot...

    i did think about that & all it should do is make it stiffer if anything as the vec is lighter, but i dont drive like a looney so as long as it sits right that will do me... gonna do the rears first if it doesnt feel or look right then i will just ebay them & start again..
