    Default Chassis

    Is there a difference in the chassis between the SRI and the standard 2.2 Elegance

    Chassis on all models are the same. Just the springs/dampers that differ with spec and engine weight.

    So do you think there would be a problem in putting the SRI Springs on mine, i just bought a set off JONR, but when i phoned VX they said that the Chassis is diff. Although soon afte,r they tried to sell me £600 worth of Imrscher Kit haha.

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    They should fit, clearly the dealer knows little about the car that they sell.... I am not surprised at all. The car body will be the same, why would Opel / VX validate different bodies for different spec cars of the same model?

    My opinion is that the chassis will be the same, I can't for a minute see Vauxhall having a line running different shells. Springs and damper rates will be different for different models but my guess would be that they are all interchangeable although I wouldn't put springs/dampers from an SRI petrol on a diesel and vice versa.

    I would even hazard a guess that you might be able to interchange Saab 9-3 ones... if you really wanted to!
