    Default vectra c sri front springs

    hi people i have just failed my mot on two broken front springs . i have just fitted 2 new springs to the front . but now the front off car sits a lot higher than it did before bearing in mind i know before they where broken coils . i was just wondering if i have brought and fitted the wrong springs . there wasnt any listing in the parts catalogue stating different part numbers for an sri or standard just came under what cc the car was . so i just brought the ones that came under 1.8cc . or will i just have to wait till they embed in abit? or have i brought the wrong ones . would be very greatfull for any one to assist me on this matter . cheers in advanced mark.

    also, new springs will take a day or two to settle down to their true height.. so i'd give it 24hrs to see if it sinks anymore?
