    Default VXR springs fitted...

    I have a 2.8T Elite which is a great car but the body roll is mad!

    So I bought some VXR springs (got em for £40 from someone on VXR online) then got them fitted for £50 by a mechanic in a local garage.

    Now what really amazes me is that Vauxhall have not fitted these as standard. There is no discernible change in ride quality, it's still very comfortable, but the handling of the car has improved massively. It pitches forward much less under breaking, backwards less under hard acceleration, and is much flatter through the corners. And this is with the standard dampers.

    The car sits a good 3cm lower (estimated) which makes the car look better as well.

    For £90 fitted this is well worth it. Would recommend this mod to anyone, just check your axle weights though (mine should be the same as it shares an engine with the VXR).

    I thought us 2.8 Turbo owners already had modified springs fitted? Eibach or something? I do think mine could be a lil tighter in the corners too! Do you know how much these are standard for a set of front and back? Bought my spring compressors for the Mrs' car and wanna get my moneys worth haha

    Am sorry mate, I don't, I just put up a wanted post on VXRO and was offered a set for £40.

    The springs that came off mine were very soft, maybe in Germany they are different?
