    Default Where to find front coil spring for 04 vectra?

    I wondered if anyone could tell me where was best to find a standard replacement part for the above. Also, can anyone provide me with an exploded diagram of the front sus assembly? I've never done the job on a vectra before, though i do have some ability as a mechanic. I would assume the strut unbolts from the top in the engine bay, from the tie-rod, and from the bottom of the strut, allowing it to be removed. Then the spring should come off fairly easily and be replaceable without much hassle.

    That sound about right? Any tips or anything? Thanks folks, hope this is correct section to post in.

    Well obviously the dealer is the best place but any decent motor factor can supply them. Removal is pretty much as you describe, two bolts through bottom of strut/hub, remove top joint of suspension 'drop link' (it's not a tie bar) and a couple of turret bolts at the top. Easy peasy, good luck with it.
