    Default Quick Questions on SRI springs

    Hey all,

    Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in the 1.8 springs from the x18xe and the x18xer springs?

    I have a chance to buy a set of 1.8 springs from a face lift Vectra but am not sure if they will fit my pre facelift 1.8. I am checking the engine types to see if there is any difference from that point at present.

    Any knowlege on this is much appreciated...?

    Result... I just wondered as when I was looking at the Eibachs for the car they had two different sets and I was told I had to go for the lighter engine set... Hence the confusion..

    Mmmm you've got me thinking now. I thought they just had the one set that covered all of the 1.6 and 1.8s?

    Best seeing what the front axle weight on yours is compared to the vvt engine

    Failing that a set off non vvt 1.8 springs should be easy enough to find. Most folk will either give them away or skip them

    ahh cool...

    Do you think its workthe difference...?

    My current suspension is standard LS (as high as it can possibly go!) and I am looking for better handeling but to retain the comfort of ride if that makes sence... The 15mm drop will be nice also as it brings the arches just that bit closer to my 18"....

    Being totally honest here, save up for lowering springs. you'll end up doing it anyway as even the sri's sit too high imo
