Got a vectra C which had a failed its MOT on a broken spring. Ordered the replacement (KYB RX6222) but its shorter than the one I took off? Bit of an issue as I am only replacing one side (as im looking to lower in 3-4months anyway).
I double checked on the KYB catalogue and it looks like its the correct p/n (2002+ standard suspension for a 1.8 on the rear).
Is it normal for the spring to be shorter? There are 4 main coils, but the one I took off has 2 smaller coils at either end and the replacement only has 1 smaller coil at each end.
Really need to know asap as the car is on the driveway missing a spring as I type!
