    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    As far as I know the springs are the same on the same sizes and only change between sizes, so 302's have one type of spring, 314's have another etc.

    Early 285 calipers had a pressed steel anti rattle spring (similar to a 302 spring) the later ones from approx 2004 had a wire type spring.

    The carriers are interchangable but the springs aren't

    What side do you need Paul?
