    Default Suspension changed..... what a day!!

    well to day i was all set to do the springs all round as the front two were snapped(on about an inch off the bottom of both, thats how i didnt notice them) well the fronts went well and then the back. didnt have the right torx bit so had to go and get one. once i got back then no probs all changed well happy then we got asked by my friends dads about a noise from his car and what do you a broken spring!!! well we thought no problem but what a mistake. it was a seat ibiza and to do one side took as long as the whole vectra. the major problem was lack to accsss as the arm wouldntdrop down far enogh and then the way the shock is attached into the hub was with a clamp style idea. nightmare. but finally got it all done. other thing was found out my passenger side door handle isnt working but i think i know why and ill sort it tomorrow. such a day lol
