    The fronts are the same across the range and the signum and estate rears are the same as I recall All of this is subject to weight ranges which vary depending on engine and gearbox fit.

    Check the weights on the B piller info plate and compare but if his is a hatch the rears wont be any good for yours different weight and spring rates. Your front weight is likely 1100kgs and if they might be ok if his is a diesel.

    Just remember it's not just what it sits like, the compressionand rebound properties won't be right if the weights are out...

    the 1.8 shocks will be completely inadequate for the job in question ... so much so that the front will be insufficiently supported and may end up rupturing the shocks
    and costing you lots of money

    have a Word with Howard (porkballs29) and see which set he purchased (2.8 design manual)

    if you look at Soulmans latest car he fitted springs especially designed for a VXR and you can see the difference and how much lower the rear now sits as there designed for a hatch and not a signum (2.8 elite auto)
