    Yes u can put Sxi/Sri springs on as long as they come from a 1.8 due to the springs being tailored to the weight of the car. I think all rear sxi/sri springs are the same on all models, its only the fronts that differ. Would suggest that u get some Eibachs as the VX ones are prone to breaking.
    I had PI ones on my 1.8sxi Vectra C saloon and they were ok

    If you want to go more than 30mm then u really should replace the dampers for shorter ones. TBH I would and did with the 30mm drop.

    Eibach are the best ones which I have fitted to my 1.9cdti Vectra C Hatch, they look and feel much stronger but then they cost more than the PI ones.

    Also u will need to get you wheels realigned (4 wheel alignment) but you want to leave that for a couple of weeks so they settle first.
