    Default handling upgrades to a vectra c 3.2 v6

    hey guys iv been looking for some handling mods for my vectra c but i cant seem to find anything other than new shocks and springs. on my corsa b gsi iv got a top mounted strut brace and the difference in flatness and keeping speed through corners since fitting that is unreal. is there anything like this for the vectra or any other strut braces/swaybars/anti roll bars that will fit.

    cheers. Adam

    Im fairly sure strutbraces are of limited use on the Vec., but happy to be proven wrong

    I was always under the impression that front strut braces on front heavy FWD vehicles increase understeer.

    Question guys, is there a thicker rear anti-roll bar thats available for the Vectra C? I seem to remember dan boy having what looked like an uprated GM A-R-B.

    That's because his car was fitted at the factory with the smaller size ARB, and he bought the larger one that lots of Vectras already have.

    Swear it was still larger than the stock one I've got on mine at the moment.

    Any after market manufacturers make larger ones?

    You can stop swearing now... it was a 25.2mm ARB that DanBoy bought, the same size my humble 2.0T came fitted with at the factory. He decided not to fit it when he realised what a PITA it was going to be, including dropping the subframe.
