    Default rear spring replacement

    Hello all,

    I am having the rear springs on my 2005 vectra 2.0 dti replaced. My mechanic attemped to change last week but the new ones I aquired were some 45 mm shorter than the old ones.

    Sent these back & now got new ones but to my dismay these are the same. The origional ones are 300 mm long & the new ones are 255mm. I'm thinking 2 suppliers cant have got it wrong si is it possable that when fitted these will work okay?

    There was a previous thread on this subject with exactly the same scenario, when fitted there was no problem and ride height remained the same. I'm thinking the only way this can occur is if the new springs are stronger & the car does not lower as much when fitted. Any advice would be gratefully appreciated as I have instructed my mechanic to fit & I'm hoping for the best

    Cheers,
    Pete.
