    There's no way to be sure just from the year, engine or trim level - you'll need to either read the part number on the side of the existing bush (if you're sure they haven't been replaced with the wrong size by a previous owner) or accurately measure the ARB itself, making sure you meaure a straight section that isn't worn.

    I just got front ARB bushes for my 2007 1.9 cdti sri they were 2 part ones.

    Items 7-8 and 10 http://www.opeloem.com/vauxhall/vect...lizer_bar.html

    Check your chassis number..

    I will look out my receipt with part number.

    Rab have a quick look under the car, the sizes are stamped on(on mine anyway) the outside of the bush.

    ive mailed the seller of this listing

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...:X:RTQ:GB:1123

    and she has said that these are the only bushes she supplies for the vectra c, my model inparticular.

    i did say to her that my car has the flat brackets on the arbs, yet shes adamant that these are the correct ones.

    ive also measured mine and they are 24.2 mm coz the 24mm spanner wouldnt go over it.

    so is she correct or am i going nuts???

    I'm sure that on my 2008 (1.8 exclusiv) the haynes manual sayas that the front arb bushes are not replaceable the whole bar has to be changed.
    When I've looked at them the bushes seem to be an integral part of the bar and certainly noting like the replacement parts for older vec c's
