    Default Uprated Sports Suspention (Rear Shocks)

    I have tried shopping arround for the rear shocks for my 54 Signum 1.9 CDTI 16v Design.

    My usual part supplier doesnt stock them and Vauxhall seem to be a little confused and quoted my £277 each. (a joke)

    The confision was between the self leveling system shocks and the normal ones, I hope the quote given was the self leveling ones.

    Can anyone shed some light on which ones I have and its a long shot does any one have part numbers.

    I would go for an OE replacement - something like Bilstein. Even on the sporty Design they shoud be better than the vx offering.

    I've got a 55 Signum 1.9 CDTI 16v Design and had Bilstein B4's put on mine about 5k miles ago.

    Think I paid £80 for them both + fitting.

    What springs are you using – standard or aftermarket.

    How do you find the ride with the B4's compared to the std ride on the Design? - I find the std design suspension a bit to 'crashy'[/FONT]

    Not sure really, they were just fitted by the garage I go to as when they went to do the shocks one of the springs had snapped. I think there just standard euro-carpart type one's.

    As for the ride, its never been great, always felt slightly loose. Its no different now, but better now I've new tyres.
