    Default vectra sri suspension on a 2.2, will it fit a 1.8?

    as you know we are breaking our 2005 vec c sri, its a 2.2 direct. what i want to know is, if i took the struts and springs off, are they transferable to other engined cars, most specifically the 1.8 as it looks like thats what we are getting now, so if i can't sell the springs/shocks, i would like to keep them for spares for the new car if i ever needed them

    i realise the rears are probably all the same, but is there any difference to the fronts, with weight of engines from a 2.2 to a 1.8?

    thanks in advance

    It may sit slightly higher but not much, the 2.2 is an all alloy engine so isn't that heavy to start with. Your best finding the curb weights for both mate.

    The 2.2's have a 50kg higher spring rating.

    are they worth taking off to sell do you think, or just let them go with the car? is there much call for these?
