    Default 888 or Eibach springs

    Following on from this thread http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=38637

    I have now got a quote for vxrperformance (888) springs and they are the same price as Eibach springs.

    So couple of questions.........

    Which springs should I get ?

    Are 888 springs really Eibach's in disguise ?

    Apparently the rear axle of my car is 1100kg which is apparently light for springs rated to 1215kg. Both set of springs have this rear weight rating. This may not result in a massive drop but thats not really the idea of my new springs.

    suggestions please..........

    888 are said to use the Eibach's. I bought mine from Roadrunner too.

    There are 3 sets listed for the Estate too m8 All rears are the same it's just the fronts that differ.

    Steve's setup did, but when I was enquiring about it they would only fit these with shortened dampers and wanted £695 fitted so I left it at that, no thanks The springs they supply are just the normal Eibachs as far as I know.
