    Default Help Vectra sri owners please

    I have fitted some new standard monroe springs to the vectra but the front seems a bit high, it might just be me but went for the HD ones on the front.

    so was wondering if anyone has standard springs and shocks if they could tell me the distances from the top of the tyre to the bottom of the arch please.

    Many thanks

    Heres some pics, I fitted the springs this morning. monroe do 2 types for the front on the sri 2.2 direct, both GTS, one is HD which i think means heavy duty and one standard. they only do 1 type for the back not HD.

    I have HD front part number SP3088 and SP2817 Rear.

    Standard there's about a 1cm gap extra on the fronts across all models, yours looks a good inch, maybe sent wrong set up or not settled yet?

    what size tyres do you have on?
    Springs are ordered by axle weight so it could be you have the wrong ones

    I think HD is off road springs or similiar which may be for Police cars.

    why did you go for monroes are they cheaper than Eibachs?
