Close. Mine are 28998-5
I am not sure why that site is saying it isn't for the 2.0 but obviously it worked
40-series? 20? 19?Cool bro...just pulled the trigger on the ones I posted just since they said they're for the Saloon 2.0 Turbo FWD. I'd put money on it that they're the same spring you got...
Anyways...they were $294 shipped.
I'm going to throw these on with some matte black Giovanna Kilis's and hopefully a 40 series Nitto...think I'll be able to swing that or would I need to go with a 35?
Then I'm going to back out all the accents; front grill, fangs, etc.
I've got the dark grey metallic...it should look good.
I just ordered the 28998-1 too (for 2.0T Saloon). Excited! Ill post up some pics of the results.
I tried to find out the difference between the 28998-1 and the 28998-5 kits. It looks like -5 is "front axle up to 1160kg" and -1 is "1161kg+"
I'm guessing for any added weight between a 1.6/1.8 and the 2.0T?
Well I guess we will see, he says the 5's won't fit but mine clearly doI was wondering if I should of emailed them and told me to send the 5's. They didn't ship yet maybe I will do that. I doubt there's any difference between the two. Hmm. So going back to the whole 245/40/20 thing...think I can swing it with those lowering springs. I can't really tell how much room was left in your wheel wells from the pics you put up earlier in the thread.
EDIT: I shot them over an email about this and this is the response I received...
I am not sure who has informed you of that but they are wrong, There is only one Insignia engine that is not 4 cylinder and that is the VXR (2.8T 4WD) and they have completely different springs to the others.
The springs you have sent me the link for are for the 1.6, 1.6T & 1.8 that we have over here. I believe that Buick doesn't use these engines in the US. The UK has become obsessed with emissions and fuel consumption in recent years unfortunately and we have some smaller engine cars than you guys in the US. Obviously the smaller engines weigh less so that kit is for them. I believe that the smallest you guys have is the 2.0T so the springs you have ordered are correct.
They will be with us here on Monday and we will then get them shipped over to you. I have had this conversation with another customer from New York State who has ordered them for his 2.0T Buick Regal as well.

We have the VXR front suspension? That's interesting. Does the "regular" 2.0T Saloon (ie. Buick Regal turbo) have HiPer strut? Maybe that's what he means?
I know the GS is lowered 0.4" compared to a "normal" Regal, so does that mean it has different springs?
I'm going to do the -1 (in the guy in NYS that Graeme mentioned) and see where we are.
Ideally, you think we need the VXR fronts and 2.0T rears?
Unfortunately it has been months since I did my initial research but I finally remembered why I went with the -5.... if you look at the door sticker, our front axle is 1112kg. That would mean -5It looks like -5 is "front axle up to 1160kg" and -1 is "1161kg+"
