    Default Boot struts

    My boot struts are struggling with the extra weight of a rear spoiler, are there any upgraded versions to be had? For instance are the XP 2 struts or the VXR ones any better to compensate for the VXR spoiler they have fitted?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    £51 a pair inc. VAT 3 years ago. Replaced mine on my old Edition100, which had an Irmscher Rear Wing Spoiler. The extra weight of the spoiler was negligible IMO, and I replaced the originals like-for-like.

    Changing them did make one hell of a difference though.
