    Default 3.2 V6 GSi - suspension upgrade?

    Hi, Does anyone have any reccommendations for a spring (and potentially shock) upgrade for a vectra 3.2 V6 GSi?

    I'm leaning towards Eibach pro spings, but not sure which part number I want.

    Any views of shocks for the GSi, or any other suspenion/handling upgrades for that matter!

    Cheers!!

    eibach springs and bilstein B6 shocks, iirc the B6's are quite a bit stiffer lower and harder than the standard b4 shocks, either that or coilovers

    I have Eibachs on mine and, even by themselves, they made a difference. I'd love to be able to shell out for some Bilstein B6s for it too but just cannot justify the expense at the moment.

    Aside from that, Neo Bros seem to do some stuff for Vec handling - polybushes, etc.

    Eibach Pro's and Bilstein B6 are awesome, very good ride and good control.

    Thanks for the replies. In addition, do you know what size the ARB bushes are on a GSi? 25mm front and 19mm I guess? Think I'm going to fit Powerflex bushes on the ARB's and rear upper control arm at the same time.
