    Default Front shock absorber help

    Hearing front noise when doing an uneven road, and can see the oil leak from front shock absorber, I assumed it's gone....

    Looking for absorber in ebay, there are 2 links:

    and

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FRONT-SHOCK-AB...es_CarParts_SM

    Which one will fit my 54 reg 1.9 CDTI 8v 120ps, preface fullcan vectra?

    Whoa, far too much, go to www.eurocarparts.com, you will get a pair of bilsteins for about 50 quid a side with free delivery. These shockers are far superior to the OE vauxhall ones

    Check the springs first!!if only for safety as they can rip into your tyre if broken.
