    Vehicle : Vectra C estate

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 79000

    Default what springs

    I got some 2nd hand shocks and springs for my 1.9 16v sri vec a few weeks back, and the front is still sitting a bit too high.

    Ive double checked the shocks and they are for the lowered sports chassis, which is correct but the springs have no numbers on so cant check them.

    So im assuming the springs are incorrect. Question i wanted to ask is what springs can i get that are aftermarket that will lower the front.

    Had a look at a few on ebay but unsure on what people use. Any suggestions

    cheers

    Default

    I have a set of Signum FK springs (bought off wotsthestory when I met him a while back)

    I was going to use on my vec well the fronts only as im sure the rears won't fit but never got round to it and they are just taking up space in my shed now.

    I think it's a 40 mm drop at the front.

    I will get the all the info together and post up in the for sale section.

    Cheers

    Default

    This seems to be a common issue when fitting replacement springs
    Don't forget if the originals had snapped, then you are comparing collapsed ride height against corrected ride height

    I too had concerns, but compared photos I had taken when I first obtained my car and can clearly see the difference
    6 months has passed and the car now appears have settled back to a slightly lower position
