europarts 107721088 thats the order No. not long since did mine.
euro car parts
and those "107721088" won't fit 2.6 despite the website saying they will, or 3.2
they are for solid rear discs  ;)
2.6 and 3.2 are vented rear disc

my rear discs on a 2.2dti are vented hence the pins need to be longer & having just recently fitted some so know that ecp No is right
Ecp DID do the pins for vented kits, weather you get the correct ones is another matter, your best going to your local store order them, and collect in person.

I bought 107721088 from ECP at end of May.  definitely for solid rear discs.  Interestingly ECP list two types (at least for mine) and the second type is for a Vectra B - don't understand that

New GM 56mm cross springs for vented are no longer available anywhere, including the USA probably, since around 2013. That said I've been told that 86mm pins could still be had a couple of years ago, so it's worth a shot to see can a dealer get some on special order.

In September 2017, I asked my local VX dealer about the vented pins and anti rattle springs. They checked and stated there were only 14 pins and 6 springs available anywhere in the UK, Europe or beyond - the majority in Germany. Not cheap, but I bought the lot....
I'm sure there will be more hidden away somewhere but it's just where....
Oh, and in case anyone wonders, having 3 Omegas with vented rear discs they aren't for sale - sorry.....

Re. the vented pins and springs - I contacted my local VX dealer a few days ago after the recent suggestion that they were totally unavailable, and asked again about whether they are still obtainable with the idea of adding to my existing supply so that I had complete sets, ie full sets of 4 pins, and 2 springs.
As a result today I picked up a further 2 pins and 6 springs (9195055 and 9195056).
So they are still available - the pins were at Luton and the springs in Germany.
So I'd get your skates on and get some from Vauxhall whilst there are a actually some still obtainable.....
And don't be fobbed off because they can't be bothered to search properly!
