    Default Signum Handling

    I think i've worked out why I thought my Signum didn't handle too well.

    When I test drove the car, I heard something hit the underside of the car. The salesmen told me i'd ran over something, which i knew i hadn't.

    Didn't think anymore about it, until when it was MOTed it failed on a broken (nearside) front spring. He told me they'd replace it anyway. I asked for BOTH front springs to be replaced.

    On collection of the car, it was clear that hadn't happened, so i bit of extra negotiating and I drove the car away.

    When fitting my Rear Parking Sensors I noticed the Nearside REAR spring had be replaced.

    Last Wednesday the unreplaced Front spring broke.

    Thankfully i'd just taken delivery of a set of PI springs, so last Thurs I fitted them.

    However, during the few weeks of ownership, i felt the car handled a little strangely at times, i now know why!



    The perfect example of why you replace both springs on an axle at the same time.
    (It'd also help fitting the correct spring for the car)

    Handles so much better now.
