    Default Lowering Issue....& VRX Brake upgrade...

    I went to lower my 08 SRI CDTI Vectra C on 18" wheels today using Eibach pro kit E10-65-011-01-22.

    Looks like it didn't make any difference. Drove 50 miles now and still seems high.

    I'm thinking did I order the wrong kit? Can anyone help me? Should I have ordered a SRI lowering springs?


    Also got my hands on a set of ASTRA VXR brakes and went to fit them today and found the bracket holding the calipers were different so is there anyone doing a bracket to convert them to fit a Vectra?

    Thanks...

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : VXR-D

    Engine : 1,9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2006

    it take a few miles to settle properly

    the Astra brakes dont fit the Vectra , i know the are brackets to fit the Vectra brakes to the Astra as the Vectra runs bigger brakes , but to make the barckets would be pointless as it would be a down grade not a upgrade from Vectra VXR brakes

    Pics of your spring install (Gap) would be good to see. I'm sitting 340mm from the center of the hub to wheel arch. Whats yours?

    Will try and get pictures up tomorrow. I'll also measure them too, Didn't have time to take them today as I had to get to work as soon as they were in.

    Going to get 19" BBS CH's and wanted to have it sitting something like this, as my Vectra is the same colour .. (Picture taken for the place I'm getting my wheels, Hope ye don't mind)
