    Default Anyone know how to find out axle weight?

    Ordering the KW Varient 1 shocks and springs for my Veccy.

    I've had an email back from the tuners asking me for the axle weight so they can be sure they send me the right ones.

    does anyone know where or how I can find this out? Ive looked in all the books and can't find it anywhere

    Or does anyone already know the axle weight, both front and back, of a 255 Vectra VXR?

    Thanks in advance,

    Matt

    Just about to order some Eibach coils (just failed an MOT due to 2 knackered front springs) - checked my axle weights as above and found:
    1885 Kg
    3235 Kg

    Thats not right surely? ('53 1.8)
