    Default Lowering question.

    Morning all.
    i have a preface vectra c sxi with 18" wheels, I have been told that the best drop is 40/45.
    Would you say this is correct?
    And was just wondering would it be best to get ccoilovers rather than springs?
    Coz if I got springs I would have to get upgraded shockers aswell wouldn't i?

    also any pics of your lowered vectra would be a big help.

    Get H and Rs, perfect stance but still practical. My Irmschers (Eibachs) broke - coil ends are too thin. And I'm still on the original standard shocks at 135,000 miles and everything still in control.

    What Andrew said above, H&R springs will be perfect, are stronger than eibachs (my eibachs broke too!) and look better fitted too..

    Are the H&R just springs?
    What do they lower by?
    Have you a piccy of yours on the H&R's

    The H and Rs lower by 40mm. Here's my car on Irmschers - the same as Eibachs:

    and on H and Rs:

    Sorry about the second photo. It was just after I'd fitted them and it was getting dark and taken with my phone. I think they've settled very slightly since then but I find it a perfect look and is still every-day-driveable.
