    This should help....http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=46991

    Very simple (if you have Torx sockets) Remove the bottom bolt of the dampers (shock) using a jack to support the suspension arm. Wind down the jack and the spring will become loose. Remove spring replace with new one. Wind jack up so bolt and hole are level. Replace bolt ...job done.

    Best bet is take the wheel off and have a look. You will see its really that simple....
