    Default Front spring replacement

    Right, I had a spring replaced on the front of my vectra a couple of days ago as it failed the MOT with a broken one. The ride height on the front is a little higher than the back now by a good couple of centimetres. Is this normal? I appreciate that over time they bed in but I've had a replacement before and it didn't look as high and on an SRI the ride height tends to be lower.

    Sounds like who ever fitted your springs has fitted standerd springs , SRI,s are 15 mm lower than the standerd set up
