    Welcome to Vectra C mate.

    Whats your budget??

    For around £325 you can get arguably the best suspension set up you can buy for a Vectra C, Bilstein Shocks and Eibach Springs.

    You need to find out if the standard shocks are knackered. Vectra's are prone to eating Rear Shocks, so you may find the rears have gone. Also broken springs have been know on more than a couple of occasion's.

    If the springs are ok, you will be able to get away with putting 4 shocks on it(Best to replace all 4 at once, just so the car stays handling properly). Euro Car Parts or LMF are your best bet for replacement shocks.
