    Question Eibach springs : Where to buy and a question on 'em?

    One of my rear springs snapped right at the base a while ago and I posted about it here. At the time a set of Eibach springs was suggested as replacements.

    Can some kind soul point me in the direction of where to purchase these Eibach kits?. What one do I require for a 3.0 V6 CDTi late 2004 model?.

    Also - I take it there is no issue fitting these springs to standard shocks?. Are the Eibach springs shorter than the standard SRi ones and if so do they fit fine on standard shocks?.

    Many thanks.

    I put a set of Eibach's on mine the other week after a front spring snapped.

    Got them off LMF, cheapest by far (even cheaper than direct from Eibach who also quoted 5 weeks for delivery!)

    On LMF's site it will show you the axle weights (there are 3 kits for the Signum)

    I'd say being the 3.0 td you'll most likely need the highest weight.

    When laid side by side the Eibach springs are alot shorter, but once on the car the drop isn't that much.

    Cheers,

    A bit confused as to what ones to order though. what weight option is it for the V6?. There is a choice of 4 different types.

    If you open your drivers door and look on the central pillar, there will be displayed the axle weights, write these down and give the guys at LMF a call, they are very helpful and will tell you what you need to know.

    I don't know if we still get some sort of discount but it is worth mentioning you are a member of vectra-c.com and that we pointed you in the right direction.

    The worst they can say is no discount so it's worth a try.
