    Default Need replacement springs for SRi 2.2DTi...

    I had the car serviced the other day and they said the rear springs look corroded and recommended to change them. I've read enough on the forum to know that the Vauxhall standard springs are prone to snapping so I'm looking for the same size springs that are more reliable.

    I'm not that bothered about lowering the car as I think the SRi is low enough on its standard springs and I don't want the ride to be any harder than it already is. Plus it would also mean replacing all 4 springs instead of just the rears.

    Any recommendations and/or links to what I need?

    Cheers

    I replaced both rears on mine from local auto factors - iirc it cost around £70 for both. The back springs are a doddle to change and should take about an hour.

    The 1st part of the how to below is pretty handy to

    I've been looking in Euro Car Parts and they do two versions:

    and

    http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Va...5be2e7588&COIS

    I have an SRi so I think I need to go for the 2nd link as it says ;lowered chasis' in the description.

    Is that correct? Has anyone bought SRi springs from Euro Car Part?
