    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra Hatch

    The coilovers for £200 are crap quality with loads failing.
    I'd recommend eibachs or H+R springs with bilstein b6's
    ( b4's are the standard non-sri suspension shocker absorber)

    They should be fit for purpose and last at least 1 year without any issue, and up 5 years (6 years in England and Wales) before they need replacing
