    Default Snapped Coil Spring

    It had to happen sooner or later, it's boinging like big ben

    The thing is the dealers are too busy to replace it until after the weekend.

    Luckily It's booked in for it's service and MOT early next month so wont be using it until them.

    I have read on here that broken springs have been replaced under Network Q warranty. If that's the case I should be able to get both front springs done under my Network Q warranty

    What do you guys reckon??

    I would love to but holidays and servicing/MOT on both cars has hit hard.

    I'll try and get them done under warranty first but

    If I end up paying for spings, then I will go for 4 eibachs instead of 2 Vx which I understand will work out roughly the same price.

    EDIT: Where is the cheapest place at the moment for a set of Eibachs?

    Founds these to be not too bad price but you may find cheaper elsewhere. Allot of people on here get parts from LMF - Give them a call and tell them your a member of Vectra-C and you may get further discount too.

    Cheers for the reply lads, I dread to think what might have happened today,

    I had just pulled off the motorway when it went, the wife and kids were in the car too which is rare

    I think the eibach pro kit on LMF is about the cheapest I've found. Graham goode racing is also doing them for slightly more

    http://shop.grahamgoode.com/eibach-p...22-56438-p.asp

    but i'll go for LMF and mention the forum
