    Default Which Springs, Eibach part no?

    Hi all,
    After having 1 new coil spring fitted by a garage this week under warranty, yes they only replaced 1! I'm un-happy with the height of it now (as in previous posts).
    LMF is just round the corner from me and was thinking of popping round to get/order some Eibachs, as with previously using these and the reviews seem good from you guys on here.
    Question is what exact part no do I require as there seems to be slightly different ones looking in different places??
    I have a 06 Vectra Sri XP 2.0T thats on 19" Snowies.
    Many thanks?

    As they are graded on axle weight the best thing to do is on the driver side door pillar plate it tells you front and rear axle weights. Take note of these and give them a call or match them up via there website matey.

    F****ing jokers, only one replaced and using rough measurements (fingers) the gap between all wheels and tyres isn't the same on any of them!
    Popped round to LMF at lunchtime and ordered my Eibachs which would hopefully make the car nice and even and tight
    Out of interest I have notice Sachs shocks on the front and KYB Gas Adjustables on the rear is this standard? The guy at the garage said the rears are as new and hadn't been long fitted...

    cheers

    Eiback pro springs received yesterday from LMF, very quick as ordered into stock last Friday, spoke to their recommended garage near my office in Market Harborough and all being fitted tomorrow, can't wait as the front stilt look is not good! Pictures of before and after to follow.

    WARNING:
    reading through this forum the axle plaque on the door pillar may say 1065kg for the front (as mine) eibach specify two ranges of springs for this model up to 1060kg and up to 1135kg they insisted (Eibach) that the correct ones are the 1135kg ones, since my 1065kg was greater than the 1060kg max of the lower spring.....
    I had to fit the higher rated springs and guess what, my car lowered 5mm at best. I was very dissapointed and complained bitterly but they insist they are correct.
    Lot of peeps on here have fitted the 'wrong' springs and achieve the better stance.
    If you search on eibach the numbers will show up.

    I have the kit part no E10-65-007-01-22 which I found to be the most commonly used on here and the guys at LMF also agreed this would be the suitable kit for my sri turbo, I hope it drops it to make a difference, expensive if it doesn't!
