    Default road handling

    Hi im new to this so il try my best . I have a vectra 2.2dti elite 2003 , iv had it for 4 months second hand . Its road handling was fantastic when i first bought it BUT now the rear end has started to skip when going over small holes and such on the road ( could it be the shockers ) there is no noise really at all the car is as quiet as the day i bought it . I have double checked the tyre pressure so i know its not that and there is no tyre wear. Could anyone HELP me?


    p.s. If it is the shockers could someone tell me where the cheapest are to be found.

    Definately Rear Shocks mate..

    Go for Bilsteins as a replacement, try Euro Car Parts as hey are very cheap for them..

    Dont buy genuine VX parts, as they are weak and cr*p quality

    No, just ask them for Bilstein B4 Shocks for a Vectra, and tell them what model your's is....

    I rang ECP yesterday for a quote on B4's for mine and they came back with:
    Rear - £29
    Front - £36

    Not bad me thinks.
