    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi (VXR Styling)

    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    I've got these on standard shocks...

    No probs on normal shocks, but lowering will show up any weak or failing shocks...

    Recommended - yes / have to - No... I never have and never had any issues. i've had g-max before, but PI do a 45mm kit front and back for the dti.

    Only 5mm but you'll wish you went that bit lower if fit the g-max ones
