    Default suspension, rattle, poor drive

    hello, i have no idea what it is or whether it is just the vectra standard spring but recetly it seems very unconfortable driving, now i have 18 inch low pro wheels on so i thought this could also make the ride harsh but it seems i feel every bump in the road but then some roads there no problems atall. also every now and then i get a clunk noise from either frount right or left but i have chechd the springs and seems to be no damage atall. so do you think this is just the poor vectra suspension and that i should invest in some new? i have wedged the parcel shelf against the boot at the moment until i find some other way of stopping it bouncing aswel because it was making a lot of noise which made things worse

    thanks Dean

    Before you look at replacing suspension check your droplinks..Im not entirely sure what the setup is like on the veccy, but I know that when I changed them on my fto it made a MASSIVE difference to the ride quality - AND the odd clunking noise I had been listening to for some time went away completely.

    There was a modification to fit a plastic sleeve around the bottom coil of the front road springs- this was to stop the clonking noise as the spring settles in the cup. As long as the spring isnt broken then its nothing to worry about.
