    Rear anti roll bar links and upper control arms (Banana arms) would be the first place to start looking.

    Probably 99% guaranteed to be rear control arms. I had the same problem and also a twitchy back end. Replaced them on the weekend and the car is transformed!!

    I bought some ebay ones for one of my previous Vectra, although they were good at solving the problem, the holes for the wiring loom clips were wrong, so had to cable tie.

    The ECP ones had the holes in the right place.
