    Default vectra c suspension problems .

    Hi all i have a 53 plate 2.2dti elegance and have been more than happy with it but am looking at buying a 58/09 1.9cdti design,sri or elite and have had springs break in the past , does anyone know if GM have rectified this problem so later model vectras are spring break free! Correct me if i'm wrong but i think sri versions have stronger suspension many thanks people.

    they break all the time on all models but its by no means a vauxhall issue its an all brands issue

    you can buy a set of after market springs that are way stronger for little money I have low sport 30mm springs

    the ride is improved theres no nose floating about heavy breaking or acceleration

    cheaper than 1 replacement spring or was when I was looking for sri ones

    Thanks for your help John surprised GM haven't fitted stronger springs on later models. Also does lowering the suspension by 30mm
    count as a modification to change insurance?

    its not a GM only issue all makes are having the same problems its the roads

    as for insurance being a change in car no doubt you could say you had no idea I doubt it would make much of a difference anyway
