    Anyway, personally and from experience, i would go for Bilstein B4 shocks mate, they are far superior to the standard one's and they are no more expensive either, Euro Car Parts are probabaly the cheapest place to get them from, although if you get your springs from LMF, you may want to pay a bit extra and get the shocks from them too so it all arrives at the same time.

    if you go and do it the way you are you will then have what we call the Irmscher setup

    eibach springs and bilstein shocks are about the best way you can go on the vectra c

    No, Euro Car Parts.

    They dont list Vauxhall for some reason, But Bilsteins Head Office in the UK is in Euro Car Parts in Coventry, I know coz i collected my shocks from there.

    I didnt buy mine from ECP, i just happened to phone them for something else and we got round to talking about suspension and at the time they were doing them for £29 a corner.. That was back in June, but also back in June LMF wanted £45 a corner for them(I had ordered from LMF before i spoke to ECP!)
