    Don't know if its sports or not but you should always replace these things in pairs. The other one will probably go the same way anyway so just as well to sort it now

    I thought the Design was built for comfort, and thus wouldn't have thought it had sports suspension.

    OP, if you goto your Vaux dealer with the car's chassis number, they should be able to tell you one way or the other.

    I have an 05 design Vectra and it does not come with sports suspension as I have added SRI shocks and springs and it is now 15mm lower than standard, the signum is different as I recall.

    Yes my point PARKY has an 04 Vectra which doesn't have the sports suspension on the Design as I said I thought the Signum was different.
