    confused Bilstein B4 + Eibach Pro

    Gents,

    Planning to fit Bilstein B4 and Eibach Pro on my Vectra C. Having in mind B4 are replacement for OEM shocks, and Eibach Pro are lowering the car by 30mm, I'm wondering if it will work together. Will the Bilstein's not bottom because of these 30mm? Did anybody use this combination?

    No mate, I have the same combination on mine and there perfect. They only lower my SRi by 15mm as mine is 15 mm lower than yours, the SRi shocks and none sport shocks are the same length.

    Could you elaborate a little? I'm seriously considering this upgrade...

    Yups, got this combination on mine....

    Here's a direct comparison of a standard LS next to mine, it's actually quite a difference, but away from other C's it's subtle enough not to be noticed.

    Oh, but on the downside.... You WILL catch the front bumper on big speed bumps, curb's and on the road itself coming off steep driveways etc :/

    A bit like Birchy's thread mate, just a bit more like an in-depth review? Just really interested in the differences between the standard sri setup and the bilstein/eibach upgrade.

    The ride doesn't feel any harder than SRi TBH, but put it into a corner and straight away you can feel the extra grip with less body role and better traction.
