    Default front spring broke

    vectra 04 estate 1.9 cdti elite, had a noise from the front end lately, replaced drop links and arb bushes. noise was still there so read a few lines on here today and decided to have a look at the springs, sure enough the front drivers side was broke under the plastic sleeve at the bottom approx 6 inches from the end.

    any how, springs seem cheap enough, anybody bought from vx using the trade card, how much? is it best to buy a different make like monroe, seems to me a lot of people on here have had vx ones break?
    what else would need doing at the same time, shocks seem ok and dry, what abiout the bearing at the top? is it best to replace both front springs? will that effect tracking at all?

    cheers

    From Vauxhall they are silly money and do break still.

    Just aswell change both springs (Should always be changed in pairs) and if you have a problem with the top mount bearing change it, if not I wouldn't bother.
