    Default new spring and shocks + lowering

    Hi Guys

    Ive been looking at lowering my vec for a while and its never had new springs or dampers/shocks according to the service history so i think its about ready for both. i also want to lower it 30-35mm so i was looking at these

    http://www.topgear.co.uk/acatalog/Sp...ll_Vectra.html the part code is Spax-PSX-TAP672

    so its springs and shocks... worth it?

    cheers mike

    ID recomend you to replace the shocks and springs, and the front strut top bearings as these can become noisey.

    The Spax PSX kit listed above is a full set of springs and adjustable shocks. Had the same kit fitted to my old saloon and it was superb. Definitely agree with replacing the top strut bearings though.
