    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default Can you get (or does anyone have) Spax adjustable shocks?

    As above, can you get these for the Vec? I need softness for towing but stiffness when not, has anyone seen these for the Vec C?

    Yeah, mine's the Spax PSX adjustable kit (shocks and springs). The shocks are stiffness adjustable (not height adjustable). There's 28 settings of stiffness on them, I currently have mine set on 8 and I love it. It goes round corners at speed like it's on rails now. It lowers the car by about 35mm

    The kit numbers you need (because you won't find these on any Spax suppliers website for some reason) are:

    Saloon/Hatch: TAP 670

    Estate: TAP 673

    They're that good and I'm that pleased with them on my saloon that I will be putting them on my estate as soon as I get it back next month too.

    HTH

    Edit: pics of the kit in this thread http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...=105588&page=2

    And fitting them in this one: http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...=105609&page=4
