    Default Towing?

    Hi all
    I've got a bog standard vectra c life 1.8 54 plate. As anyone who has one of these will know the springs can make you feel sea sick when you pogo around. I replaced the shocks with Bilstein B4's which helped. I have read a lot of good press on the Eibach Prokit on here and so think thats what I will go for.....
    My question is, I tow a 1100kg caravan a few times a year, are these springs suitable? I would be effectively lowering the car by 30mm and dont want to bottom out
    cheers to all who take the time to reply
    Si

    Na you won't bottom out mate, just make sure nose weights are correct and you'll be fine. I tow a 1250kg Swift Corniche with my SRi DTi fitted with eibachs and there is loads of clearance
