    Default Eibach Springs plus......

    Still can't decide on what to do regarding the suspension on the Vec.

    I want Eibach springs, as I had them on my Astra, and they were great. I ran them with standard SXI/SRI shocks.

    Is the Vectra OK running the springs on standard shocks as well?

    I'd like to upgrade to Bilstein, but cost wise the B4 seems the best option at the minute, as B6 and B8 almost doubles the price.

    I don't really drive the car agressively (to be honest, I've only just done 4.5k miles in 7 months, and I've since halved my annual milage by car sharing to work), so is it really worth the extra in upgrading the shocks as well?

    I have standard SRI shocks with PI springs, 40/45mm and it works well,

    I'm running the eibach springs in my CDXi (GSi) with the standard shocks. Handles great, even pushing it a little.

    Cheers guys, think I may just go for the springs on their own. I know they were fine on the Astra with the standard shocks, and I really can't justify £500 for the Bilstein.

    Have you got any pics to hand so I can see what it sits like?

    Well you normally have to get the wheels alligned professionally for the camber and rake to sit correctly.
