    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra Hatch

    Trim : SRI with added X-Pack

    Engine : 1.9 16v 150

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : Near 100K

    Default

    Check for play in any bushes/arms/balljoints an replace as nesecerry, Also check for rubber bushes that have went 'soft'
    then after all the work is carried out check tyre pressures and get it 4 wheel aligned

    You will love the b12 setup!

    track rod ends, wishobones, droplinks on the front, that shoud tighen your steering right up, and as said tyre pressures and a wheel alignment.
