    Default cornering

    would anything be gone in my rear suspension to cause the car to "lose it" on bends? i could take bends in my 02 astra at speed and the vectra does just be about to lose it. 225 new pirelli p-zeros.

    Feels like theres something up...

    Also i mite add im not doing it at a careless speed now. just not 10mph

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Depends on several things, but the Vec C rear end does have a habit of getting very floaty indeed if the rear shocks are on their way out even if they look ok. Cheap enough to replace if you've got the standard ones on still and will make a big difference.

    If you're getting a noticeable knocking noise from the rear then the rear upper control arms will probably need changing (another very common thing) and always worth changing your anti roll bar (ARB) bushes as they're negligble cost anyway.
