    Its all about the pressure if you find the right length. Vectra B's have different types depending on whether you have spoiler or not. New Astras are a different size to vectra b but havent compared these to vec C.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    I have standard boot struts on my 2.0T hatch which has a wing rear spoiler (genuine Irmscher factory-fitted). The weight of the spoiler is not sufficient to warrant stronger struts IMO.
