    Exclamation Banging from N/S Rear

    Hi All

    My name is Andy and I am new to this site, I have been looking at the threads and found them very interesting and helpful, however I would just like to ask for your opinion on a problem that I have just started having with my 2003 Vectra SRI

    Occasionally when travelling down bumpy county roads I get a very loud BANG from the N/S Rear of the car but this does not always happen.
    I did drive at a reasonable speed over a hump in the road that lifted the car up off the suspension and as it came down it made an almighty band on the rear as it has in the past.

    Is this a problem with the Shocker, spring or could it be something completely different?

    I would love to hear what you have to say as i am a little worried about it now.

    Kind Regards

    you could have done either...damaged the shock, or snapped the spring.

    the only way to find out for sure is to get underneath it and have a look..
