    Everyone will post Eibach's for the springs. Expect a debate of which Bilstein shocks though. Really depends on how much money you want to spend to be honest. Cheapest are B4's. Usaully you can get them on order from Eurocarparts.


    enjoy.......

    Go for the Eibach springs and Eibach Dampers as I find they are a good match. Resonable price as well from www.europerformance.co.uk

    I can highly recommend the Bilstein B12 kit - sport dampers with H&R springs. Had them on my Astra, and it was totally awesome. You get what you pay for, and really the B12 kit was worth every penny of £500.

    I got them off Balance Motorsport - probably the nicest people I've ever dealt with, maybe even better than LMF (and that's saying something!).

    Here's the kit:

    i've got the 2.0dti aswell and its got the bilstein B8's with the -40mm H&R springs, yes its hard but the rides pretty good considering how it goes round corners ok its not the fastest of vectras (well ok its the slowest!) but with sorted suspension you can carry silly speeds around the corners which makes up for lack of ooomph

    It may not be the fastest of Vectra's, but my old DTI had the grunt low in the rev range, that could catch many a quicker car out!!
