    Default Wobble bolts on a 3.2 v6??

    Just a simple question, are wobble bolts suitable on a 3.2? I'm wondering about the weight and power...
    Ta very much.

    dont know about the bolts but i checked my weight against other vectras and the 3.2 gsi is only 30kg heavier than a 2.0t sri which 30kg is not much
    so carnt really understand when people go on about the v6 3.2 being such a heavy car.

    i might be wrong thinking 30kg is not that heavy im sure other people on here will say thats heavy for a car
    its only these last few weeks that ive realised that the gsi isnt as heavy as i first thought as been looking in to springs to lower her
    my theory is the their not much difference in weight for a gsi to a 1.9cdti or a 2.0t sri so why would i have to buy different springs
    i dont think theirs any problem with the power going to wheels for the wobble bolts ive been looking myself though all the old threads on here and carnt seem to find anything

    Are the weights with or without a full tank of petrol ? If they are the 3.2 will not be heavier for long lol

    Sometimes it's the same product anyway, just labelled different and at a different price.
    Thanks for the info, appreciate it!

    I run wobble bolts on my 320bhp astra vxr. They will be fine, granted it doesn't weigh as much as your but I doubt that comes into it as the bolts don't take the weight, the hub should.
