    Default Stronger springs

    This is a different question.
    I want to replace the rear springs on the GSi but I DON'T WANT to
    lower it.
    I want to fit stronger springs to tow a caravan. I had to replace one of the front springs to get it thru the MOT last month but its been off the road since February. I will replace all the springs but any advice would be great
    Thanx

    Just had KYB springs from a local motor factor, where I work part time, fitted all round on our 55 reg Facelift Club with the pre VVT - Z18XE engine @ 54K miles . which has the 'standard' suspension set-up.

    Offside front & rears were broken & other two were found to be 'cracked' when removed.

    My mate did 'em for me as mentioned in the thread below..Have you had springs break ? @

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...hlight=springs

    There's also information about getting Vxl to replace broken spring FOC upto 10 years & 60K miles..I found out to late.....

    Cheers

    The Opel cars made for eastern europe had spronger springs due to them having worse roads (nothing compared to my local potholes I am sure lol). Maybe your loacl vx dealer or somebody on here with EPC can give you the part numbers...
