    Default Time for an upgrade

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to upgrade the suspension and brakes on my 2.2 Signum Elite. I just want to know if anyone has had this done already and if my choice of:

    Bilstein B12 Tuning Suspension Kit Lowers front by: 35mm & rear by: 30mm

    EBC Sports Discs, Dimpled and Slotted with EBC Green Stuff Front Brake Pads

    Fitted with EBC front and rear calipers.

    Are a good choice

    I've just had a little trouble with handling when in country lanes and on motorways at speed.

    Cheers Jamie

    Regarding the brakes, as you will see from the matrix below, your car has the smallest of the 4 different sized front disks available on the Vectra/Signum, and the smaller of the 2 sizes available for the rear. It would be much cheaper to upgrade to bigger GM parts than to buy aftermarket calipers/disks/pads. The bigger GM parts are a straight swap for your existing ones, as long as you get the caliper carriers as well.
