    Default Speed Hump Bang

    Hi,

    I've had my Vectra GSI for 2 weeks now and love it but have heard horror stories about spring failure, suspension faults in general and a recall/mod for spring seat....what i'm leading to is my Vectra, when going over a certain speed hump in a car park, makes a loud bang from the front when the suspension rebounds....it only does it if you approach it at 5 mph + but if you go over it gently so as not to make the suspension rebound its fine. Also there is no noise driving normally, turning corners etc and its sits level and drives smooth......is this anything for me to worry about...???

    Cheers

    Carl
