    Default Vectra Shocks with Eibach Pro-Kit

    So I've installed the eibachs on to my Veccy CDXi/GTS and am curious as to what the correct shocks would be/can you recommend any?

    Cheers in advance.

    Alot of guys here use either Bilstein B4's (original equipment replacement) or B6's (uprated replacement). Eibach do a pro-damper kit that is worth looking into too

    Update....

    Went for Koni Yellow Adjustables.

    AMAZING. Would recommend them to any Vectra owners with Eibachs.

    Which Billies did you fit? B4? B6? I fitted Eibachs to my GSi a couple of years ago and was delighted but would like to uprate the shockers too for even better effect.

    Also interested in these yellow Konis. How much? Where from? Got a link?

    Cheers, people.

    You lasted that long on standard shocks?

    The only Mod Holden did was apparently "Upgrade" the shocks for Australian roads when imported from Germany. They all fail before 6 months with Eibachs.

    I hear most guys swear by B6's as B4's are OEM spec apparently.
    I went Koni purely for cost, but I think Koni Yellows will cost the same As B6's?

    Still, Koni Yellow adjustables, going strong and been punished on numerous trackdays and street flogging

    Good luck with your choice mate.

    Not quite! I had the rears done under (Network Q) warranty coz they were, err, shocking. : I was thinking B6s but don't want too hard a ride and can't afford them right now anyway!

    Thanks.
