    confused April is suspention upgrade month i think .....but what to get??

    heya everyone,

    ive got a 2.0Dti energy model so i belive its just the standard none sport suspention, so its less than to be desired lol. i want to upgrade but seems its not the most powerful car in the world im not going to go crazy. just somthing to get rid of the crazy vectra body roll. ive allrewady got ready to fit:


    New front anti roll bar bushes
    New front Droplinks

    To Get:

    B4 Front Shocks
    B4 Rear Shocks
    Eibach Pro Kit 30mm Drop
    Wiecher Front Strut Brace

    and if they make them some powerflex bushes but i havent seen any kits for the Vectra C yet.

    But i dont know if this is a good set up or not? i mean the strut brace looks good and reduces your understeer loads but it will just munch your tyres. is that correct? is it worth just spending the extra to get B6's or B8's? i do alot of moterway miles so i dont want anything that throws my spine around the car but i also do alot of really twisty A/B roads (live out in the sticks) and at the moment if its raining its terrifing lol.

    any help would be appreciated

    Will

    A lot of people over look tyres when upgrading suspension. Its okay keeping the car level but with cheapo tyres on the benefits won't be noticable. I use to have a lowered Fiesta that was on rails round corners and i swear by Pirelli P Zero's.

    Not sure if it's the Strut Brace I now have fitted but my car is feeling a little kinder to me lately, front tyres are next on the list of things to do for me. HTH ........
