    Default Springs query?

    Need some smart folks please!!

    After this thread of Johns', does anyone know for definite if the springs mentioned (Full set of SRi Lowering Springs (Standard SRi) for 1100kgs front axle) from his estate will suit Drinky's hatch?

    Any ideas before we commit ourselves?

    thanks!!

    well, my front axle weight will be the same as Chris's...3.2V6 Auto..

    My front axle weight is 1095Kgs, so 1100Kgs will be fine and give him the 15mm lower ride height..

    The rears should be fine as well, i fitted hatch springs into C's Signum and they sat in their fine, having seen lots of lowered and standard springs now under sig's and Vec's there really is no difference in how they fit..

    If the price is right for you Lou, I'd pick them up..

    Appreciate that Alex and Mark, I wasn't sure....

    Springs are free as need garage space for my new V8 engine, so just postage unless anywhere are near the Drinky's are up Newcastle way? Bit of a Vectra-C passalong!

    I haven't got access to EPC currently, but I thought the rear springs were different on an estate to a hatch/saloon?

    Right, I just thought they had different part numbers?, and if they had then that would have implied there was a difference.

    I just had this thing in my head that there was a difference, but wasn't 100% sure as I can't check.

    Edit: I thought the estate/Signum springs were the same and hatch/saloon different (rears only I'm talking here). Again, not 100% sure, just seemed to be something that was sticking in my head - and no, it ain't cobwebs!!

    There is a difference, but it's between the saloon and the others... so as they weren't off a saloon they should fit...

    I think it must be down to springing rates thou, as they all share the same rear subframe setup...there are no derivations on that that i could find in my quick 3 min look..

    Cool cheers, glad they go to a good home rather than the metal recycling. Hopefully make the Drinky GSi look a tad lower too
