    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra c

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.8 vvt

    Year : 2008

    Default Bouncy ride

    I have recently bought a 58 plate vectra c 1.8vvt design. I love the car but wondered if there is a recommended suspension upgrade. When i drive over speed ramps or bad road surfaces, the suspension seems very soft making the car feel more like a boat. I dont want the suspension lowered and want to keep a good level of comfort. If somebody could please advise it would be much appreciated

    Yep as said if you upgrade all the Dampers to Bilstein B4's they will work superbly with your standard springs and tighten it right up !!!!!

    Also worth changing the front anti-roll bar bushes and Drop links while its all apart.

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    In standard trim the design is softly sprung but shouldn't feel like a boat, have you checked your standard suspension first, there could be a problem somewhere.
