    Default Vectra C Sri T Edition 100 handling

    Hopefully someone local to me can give me a bit of a hand here.

    Car went through it's MOT in October, failed on stoooooooooooopid things (eg Headlight Aim and not orange enough indicator bulb!!)

    Anyway, the car is handling like a boat....I had the rear springs done as they had snapped just prior to the MOT, but the car is all over the place still.

    Tried checking the shocks...seem fine.

    Anyone up near INverness/Dingwall who has more knowledge than fancy a wee gander? Can't really afford to be putting it into stealers at the moment

    Many thanks in advance

    did they replace the springs to chassis or did they fit standard springs?

    have you any pictures from before and after they were replaced ??

    is there any difference on ride height now?

    just a thought

    Hi John

    The whole car feels all over the place......was out just now.....getting a creaking if stationary turning wheels on kerb side (off side/near side???) it's the kerb side to me lol

    Almost sounds like a spring of some sort popping in and out of place

    Sounds as though a strut bearing has had it, either that or it is needing the spring mod done (Sleeves put on the bottom coil of the front springs)

    That would be a place to start anyway
