    confused Bilstein B4 - which ones?


    hi folks,
    Can anybody help me please. Searching for few days already. but can't find the proper answer. I have a Vectra C 2.2 Direct 5/2005 Sedan, engine Z22YH and I'm looking for proper Bilstein B4's. Is there any difference B4 for Hatch,Saloon or Estate? I also heard about standard/sport chassis, or even standard/sport suspension. Completely confused
    So far I found
    B4 BNE-B875 rear shocks
    B4 VNE-B873/874 front shocks
    are these the right ones for me?

    There is only one B4 for all vecs. Unless you want to really drop the car much more than 40mm there perfect.

    Not really, just want to replace OEM ones. By "Only one B4 for all vecs" you mean the ones I mentioned, right?
