    Yeah the sri's are lower than the standard ones. I would personaly change the pair mate. i had one snap a few months back. the garage that does most of my work for me got one from a motor factor and it was no where near the thickness or quality of the original. his words to me were thin & crap. either go to the main dealer or get a genuine second hand one from the scrappy

    Idealy i would dig out the receipt & try & get one matching.
    Otherwise http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-V...item43a819c1d3
    i had my last one from the scrappy (genunine vauxhall one) though as i the same as you wanted to save a couple of squids.
    and of course the stealers only sell them in pairs and they dont come very cheap. if i can remember right they were bout £140. couple of quid more and i coulda changed the lot & lowered it

    take into consideration that you have split the strut to change the spring its not as straight forward as the rears.
