    Default Springs check

    Just checking before I buy please guys.
    I think these are what I need to lower a facelift sri to a height that looks better and handles better, but does not give me a much harder ride and does not make me a speed bump hitter on 215/50/17 17" sri wheels in winter, 225/45/18 18" wheels in summer.

    Eibach Pro-Kit springs 30mm ?
    Do I need hatchback ones or are saloon and hatchback the same fitting ?
    What weight do I need ?
    Where cheapest place to buy ?
    Are there cheaper makes for 30mm that are just as good ?

    hi m8
    i got eibach on mine and its handles alot better.
    hatchback or saloon are the same.
    weight is on your drivers door pillar.
    cheapest i could find was LMF.
    thier are cheaper brands around but let other members who have them answer on quality.

    Vehicle : insignia vxr

    Trim : vxr

    Engine : 2.8 turbo

    Year : 61

    Mileage : 38000

    as i said today ive go the eibach pro kit on mine with now b4 shocks .as ive got the diesel , i went with the right weight as on the door ,i think the front sits a little higher than the rear but i like/happy with it . i have noticed that some went with a lighter weight on the front and it seems to level it out think the differance is about 50kg .as you have the sri it is already lowered by 15mm so if you fit the pro kit you will only get another 15mm but it will be stiffer . i went this way as i still wanted comfort /better handling and get it looking better.. khalid

    the vectra has gone , but not far away so ill still see it form time to time
