    Looked at them on the monroe website and it says not suitable for lowered cars.I would guess they would be a bit better than b4s with eibachs.

    oh, i was thinking with 30mm lowering springs. didnt think it would make much difference as i thought these were for the sports models and the sri is already 15mm lower than standard so ill only be going another 15mm lower. ill have too look into it a bit more bfore i buy lol. im easily confused.

    Buy the originals from dealer on tradeclub for approx £50 each. I regret fitting b4's as well. Speak to Kieron at Autovaux ,he quoted me the same price last summer. B4's are too soft for the sri.

    I've got eibach springs on my Vectra Sri with the standard shockers. I'm happy with everything. It was thinking of changing the front shocks. What shocks would I be best going for is it B4's or should I just keep the standard ones on the car?

    B4s wouldnt make any difference,they might be a tad softer than sri shocks.Sri shocks are cheaper than b4 at trade club prices.
