    Default Eibach Springs

    I suppose I should have really asked about this before I got the springs but Ive recently purchased some Eibach springs 10-65-007-01-22 now I know these are upto 1060kg which is what I thought my Vectra was (Elite 1.9 CDTi pre-face lift) but it turns out my Vectra is the 1080kg would it cause alot of proplems if I use these springs or would it be OK?. From the few threads I could find Ive read it maybe a little lower drop than 30mm on the front.

    Thanks alot
    Josh

    *Quick edit
    Im not sure if this is even posted in the right place so if its not would a mod be as kind to move it for me?

    Think you will notice it more when you have things in the back.....possibly grounding out. Can you not exchange them?

    I think there are inserts you can get that actually go inside the coil ( if that makes any sense) which I believe makes them stiffer - that might sort out any issues you may have.

    I am sure someone on here with more tech knowledge will correct me

    The springs on the back are all the same but as you now know the fronts are not the right ones for your car.
    You can fit them but it will sit lower, could bottom out and will invalidate your insurance.
