    Default H & R or Eibach Springs

    Im wondering which to order..i have gone off the idea of coilovers due to not wanting a rough ride. H&R springs are 40mm but are they? the pics ive seen they make the rear look higher than the front?

    or

    Both are upto weight so would that make them drop a little more?

    How comes you have different rear springs? And can you still buy them?

    I went for them as personal preference as I liked the stance. They were off a VXR

    I'm planning on fitting the H&R springs to mine as soon as I get paid (or maybe even on the credit card before hand if I get impatient) as they are the only ones that do a 40mm drop for the estate.

    Does that mean the vectra sits higher at the back on these springs? do vxr springs fit straight on?
