    If you can do them on a B you have no probs,only thing is as you've a sri the springs will only drop it 15mm as the suspension is 15mm lower as standard on the sri.

    Sorry to jump in here but ive got a vectra LS on 17" alloys and want it lowering, not sure if 30mm will be enough though?

    If i go more i believe i need to fit uprated shocks dont i? Is it best to do this anyway? Can anyone reccomend a good lowering kit? Springs and Shocks?

    PS. I dont want it stupidly low, 80mm etc, lol. Just to take up the gap and improve handling.

    Yes they are mate,would definately get a wheel alignment check done on the safe side,most place's dont charge if they dont have to adjust anything.......

    Okay thanks very much. Just found them springs on 'motor sport world'. Only £107.00, it says they lower the rear 40mm and the front 45mm. Wont this look a bit odd? Lol.

    Nope,most vecs look nose high so a split drop evens the height out.
