    Default Which springs....

    Hi All

    I have a broken front passenger side spring in me vectra. As stated on here, this should be covered by Vauxhall with a 10 year warranty, however, when i contacted Vx they want me to take the car to the local dealer and have them diagnose the broken spring. This will cost me £75, before Vx decide if they will pay up.

    So i think my money would be better spent on some upgraded springs. I do not want to lower, but seems like i must to get springs that will not snap

    So options so far are:


    SPAX: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Spax-Lower...item2eb603ba19

    APEX: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...item45f3c63c75

    which would you recommended

    Thanks

    First I've heard of such a thing
    The maximum under Sales of Goods Act would be 6 years (and in Scotland would be 5 years)
    Equally OE warranty is only 1 year / 60K miles
    Some other components have longer warranties, such as the body
    Broken spring is wear and tear, usually caused by corrosion
