    Default lowering Vectra 2,0T?

    hi. I´m looking for some lowering springs for my vec turbo.

    but I have one question, the car is already lowered 20mm from factory. so if i buy a 35mm kit. will the car only be 15mm lower than it is today?

    Andy,

    Yes to your question.

    I have just lowered mine, and i had the same problem, i used Eibach Springs and Bilstein Shocks. It handles really well, but not happy with how low it sits.

    Check this thread out by me, i asked a very similar question, some members have posted pictures of their car's. I think once i am back to work again, i am gonna put mine on -45mm springs, as it sits nice and low. -30mm isnt enough for me.

    oh right, the ones here:- http://www.body-kit.co.uk/acatalog/v...ring_kits.html only do a -30mm for the estate. I'm sure if you do a google search on vectra c lowering springs you should find more

    I assume the rear springs on the estate are stiffer than the hatch/saloon ones to compensate for the heavier loads that could be carried in the estate. Dont quote me on that though

    When i ordered my springs, i had to tell them the sapring rating's for the car, so they could make sue they sent the right one's out. There is a plate on the B Pillar(drivers side) that tells you all need to know.
