    My Saab which is based very much on the Vectra has been doing my nut for the same noise. I replaced drop link's, ARB Bushes, Strut top mount, and both wishbone bushes. I firmly believe it is now the subframe bushes in the Saab (not sure if the Vectra has a similar six bush mounting system) but they are horrendous to get at and to change, and so my car is being traded tomorrow with this graunching over speed humps and lightweight clunk over potholes and will probably go to the crusher with the noise!

    I would start by going over each component and checking for play, I hope you have a better chance of curing it that I have had!!
