    Default PI Springs on - car is bouncy and clunking!

    Hi there,

    My dad has been fitting springs to my car today, the fronts have only been done just to see what its like and then will do the rear tomorrow.

    I just got in from work and took it for a run and the car is very bouncy, and is clunking loads when I go over any sort of bump in the road. Is this normal??

    The car is Vectra C - LS DTI 2.0
    The springs are - PI 30mm for DTI 2.0/2.2

    I'm using standard shocks.

    Thanks for your help!

    sounds like the shocks cant cope with the extra load on them from the shortened springs

    Just had a check on this : http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...non-sri+shocks

    SRI shocks are indeed shorter and so my LS shocks are unsuitable What a bummer. I'll have to order some shocks too, this is costing a bomb!! lol
