    What are you stuck on? Those B12 kits you've linked to don't specify a particular engine they're suitable for (which is the normal way to do it), they just specify hatch, saloon or estate, so just pick the one that's for your car.

    I'm guessing you have a hatch... either way your front axle = 1-1035 therefore you need the axle loads upto 1060kg from the drop down box on the page.

    Thats why i'm asking as they just specify Hatchback well i assume they go on every hatch. I have a facelift 2005 Vectra hatch 2.0 Turbo sri i was going to select the first option of front axle 960 and rear 1060 i think it stated.

    My mistake - I didn't click on the item to go further in and see that they offer different weight versions, like they should.

    EDIT AGAIN:

    Heres the Bilstein parts catalogue.

    http://web1.carparts-cat.com/default...3018004&12=130

    All state 1035 as correct rear weight.

    And either 1060 or 1135 for fronts. Ergh
