    does anyone know how much the dealers charge for a pair of rear shocks for a signum 19cdti 150 56plate?just noticed today a slight oil patch on the drive at the rear of the car and on inspection its coming from the nsr shocker.
    price for shocks only as ill be fitting myself,

    i replaced mine with Bilstein B4 shocks for £75 from eurocarparts, LMF are about the same price i think... cheaper and better than the vx shocks.. Mine leaked like yours and the vx price was stupid if i remember
    My old Signum, the animal; she now rests in pieces in several other members cars.. https://www.vectra-c.com/forum/garag...vehicle&id=200

    cheers for the reply chris and your opinion,ordered 1 new shocker today from the dealers at the cost of £75,only replacing the one as the other one is fine,keeping with the same brand(sachs) or it will mean replacing 2 and i cant see the point when only one is broken.
