Hi, I am looking to replace two rear springs in GTC 2.0 165 bhp.
One spring snapped at bottom tray. I never noticed until the service was done.

My stock spring (p/n 13340838) is 292 mm in length. Opel quoted €400 for the two springs.

I want to lower it a little maybe 30 mm.
Does anyone know a manufacturer who has a spring of about 260 mm?
Maybe I should not be measuring the uncompressed spring length?
KYB only have the 292 mm one.

Thanks
Pat

Could always fit the vxr springs, they should get it sitting nice

Do you have a part number and cost? Are these vxr springs Vauxhall or aftermarket?

I am going with Cobra springs, they were the easiest lowering springs to find in Dublin. 30 mm drop all around. Red coloured springs. Only interested in doing rear at the moment but they come in a set of 4.

Has anyone used Cobra springs before?

Yes, I'm in Dublin. I think Cobra are a Dutch company.
