    Default Need front SRi shocks ... where from though?

    I've got a full set of new SRi springs, rear shocks .... but no front ones for my veccy. Vauxhall in Rochdale want £80 each inc vat per shock ... there must be cheaper elsewhere right??
    I've also had a good look through the for sale part on here with no luck!!
    Any ideas chaps?

    Bilstein B4's are what most fit, about the same price as genuine OE shocks though.

    Thanks chaps. I tried Monroe ... and several aftermarket manufacturers and none of them do front shocks for Vectra's with 'lowered suspension', ie the SRi models. They do all the other parts just not front shocks.

    Looks like Bilsteins I think!!

    Monroe do shocks for the GTS which is the Opel equivalent & the reflex kit is uprated for a sportier ride
