    Default Ordering shocks and springs...

    Evening all, just a quick one... Just about to go on and order new shocks and springs from LMF Vauxhall, lol, before i order them - Are they the right ones? I'm pretty sure they are just a second or third or fourth opinion would b great! I have a 2.2 SRi. The shocks are the Bilstein B4's, front and rear, and the eibach springs??? Its just that for the shocks it says "Suitable for Signum and Vectra C", ok, so Vectra C...Estate? Hatch? Saloon? I have the hatch .. Here are the links http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/home.php?cat=1444

    If someone could let me know as soon as, i appreciate it, wanna get them ordered ASAP! Thanks, Al

    Do yourself a fovour, and phone Steve or Mick at LMF at 830min the morning and he will talk you through it, thus ensuring you definately get the right ones. It wont take any longer to arrive, as it wont be set out til tomorrow afternoon anyway.

    the best thing to do, honestly, is to call LMF in the morning, tell them what you need and they'll sort you out...that way you'll have the right parts first time..better than guess it on the web..

    Andrew and Neil are your men for that area mate, althogh you are more than welcome to attend any of mine in the East region if you dont mind a trip up the M3.

    When you phone LMF, he will as you the axle weights off the plate inside the drivers door B Pillar. It will be worth takng a note of them before you call to save having to call back after you go outside an get them.

    Ordered them today guys! So glad I took all your advice and phoned them... Was a little easier, plus now i know i have the right bits, rather than waiting for them to pop through the post and be the wrong ones!....although there was a catch...a bad one too.... After I ordered the, Steve phoned back about, 15 mins later, "We have the springs...we have the front shocks, but the rear shocks are out of stock and we wont get another batch from Bilstein untill the back end of next week".... oh well, i guess it keeps me hanging in suspense for that extra little bit longer. Cheers again for the help and advice. Al
