    Default rear apex lowewring springs 35mm

    hi people
    just put rear apex 35mm lowering springs on my vectra c. ive not really noticed any difference. found them easy to put on , and was wondering if there is a specific way the go on.the springs have some numbers on them so ive put the springs on so they are facing upright , so you can read them. do they take time to settle , as im doin the front
    cheers

    also bear in mind as your car is an SRi it was already 15mm lower than standard so it will only drop a further 20mm maximum on those springs.

    just taken delivery of a set of apex -35mm today going on tonight as i managed to break an eibach spring.
    hopefuly mine should drop to the same level as it being an elite originaly had higher springs.
    and the guys are right will take a couple weeks before they settle down
