My biggest annoyance is the gap, I hate it. The struts I think are still available thru Rockauto.Mine is lowered. At one time there was 24 sets of custom lowering springs made and offered on the site. I got mine used, from this site. There is an option. You can get SATRUN VUE REDLINE, struts and springs. It is a direct bolt-in, but only lowers about 1.5-2 inches. You have to use the combo, as GMC/Chevy springs will not work on Saturn Struts or vice versa. Not sure if it works on 2015 and/or AWD But last I heard, those were on a discontinue
Mine was lowered to 2.5, and then after 2 years, I decided to cut 3/4 of a coil off, and it dropped .75 - 1 inch more

I found springs here that was told would work with the struts Lowering Springs - Shocks and Springs - Suspension
Also I was told Camaro 20" rims will work on the terrain just forgot which year.
Nice! Same color as mine. Think I'll stick with all Saturn, I'm sure it will the the easiest route. What year Camaro wheels work?Yes Camaro wheels work the best.
Just remember, if you do SATURN it has to ba all SATURN (Struts and Springs) You can mix SATURN and GMC/CHEVY different spring pockets.
MEGAN is good, but I would check to see if available, before you get your hopes up View attachment 19283 View attachment 19284
Cool. Don't think I've seen the gun metal version. If you don't mind me asking another question. Hows the ride, did the drop and rims change it much?Saturn is Direct Bolt On, so yes it is easy. And if you buy them assembled it is even easier
2014 Camaro 20x8 front 20x9 rear
If I would do it again, I would get the Gun Metal

I spent some time looking and can get the strut w/springs for the front but the back is a different story. I can get the shock but the springs on the rear A arm from the pics look bigger than what is on mine now.
Cool. I can get all the parts off Rockauto reasonably priced, It doesn't state redline but the parts are for a 2007 VUE. I have a friend that does alignments, he said he has the washers he keeps them in stock. When you put the Camaro rims on did the TPMS sensors work with your Terrain?You can ask all you want, and I will try to answer
Hows the ride - Original drop was no difference. In the solo pic, i shared, that is with a coil cut. I am at 3.5 inch drop now. with that, it is a little soft, but really not noticeable
I can get the shock but the springs on the rear A arm from the pics look bigger than what is on mine now. - Mine free standing were 1 inch taller, but when installed it dropped 2.5
also you will need to get a Rear Camber Kit or at least the washer View attachment 19287

Hm might be sol then, so far I haven't found anything redline specific.I used Terrain TPMS
I am not sure if Stock struts and springs from Saturn will lower
Yea, at least I know I can throw the Camaro wheels on it to help with the gap a little it. I'm still looking, tried Autozone and NAPA and they don't have a listing for the redline but I'm going to keep looking.Its tough, its a vehicle over 10yrs old, that had limited aftermarket parts available to begin with.
The annoying part of this is when I search for the parts I put in the redline. When the search comes up every result I go to ends up being just the VUE and nothing about redline.Red Line model was offered from 2004 to 2007
Saturn released a performance model called the Vue Red Line (a hybrid version, intended to be called the “Vue Green Line” debuted later). The Vue Red Line shared the same Honda V6 as the normal version, but it was lowered, with larger wheels and a body kit. I believe this was the extent of the “performance” modifications.
GM parts are pretty much discontinued and summit when you use the if it fits it comes up that it doesn't. Carparts.com I hadn't seen before and it shows in stock, thanks for that.https://www.carparts.com/details/Saturn/Vue/TrueDrive/Shock_Absorber_and_Strut_Assembly/2007/Red_Line/SET-RS28050005.html?TID=gglpla&origin=pla&&&gclid=Cj0KCQiAjbagBhD3ARIsANRrqEv2hog0POiCZypquPv89NGJxzAbgSvhfwkOFYN7JSB15AQkL8xSf3YaAu4ZEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds.
If I'm doing the math right the difference is 3/4 inch.Read Specs there is an inch difference, combine that with an aftermarket spring and you have 3 inches
