i recently bought 2 rear springs for my Vectra C SRI 1.9 diesel from Euro Car Parts. The springs are Sachs. The part number 627722940 was identified by ECP from my registration. The label on box says 24461735 rear Opel/Vauxhall, Vectra with lowered sport chassis incl. OPC/VXR 4/.
The springs are a progressive type where the distance between each coil is different. In its uncompressed state the coils at the bottom of the spring are closer together and increases towards the top of the spring.
The springs have been fitted and the car is back on its wheels but the 3 bottom coils have grounded with each other and there is no gap between them. This surely cannot be correct. I think the car may be dangerous to drive like this.
Any thoughts or comments on this?
