    Default Front Suspension Coils

    The bottom 10cm of my o/s front coil broke off today. I have a 2002 2.2 sri. I have read on other threads that there is a mod to stop the suspension clunks.
    Can anyone help me with a couple of things?
    1. The mod I understand is a plastic fitting, do I buy this from the main dealer.
    2. Where is the best place to buy some springs and are they easy to fit? I have changed all the suspension on my son's Corsa but I was wondering if there was anything special required for the Vectra as there is no manual available.
    Any help appreciated

    You can get the little plastic sleeves from a dealer, there's a part number on here somewhere.

    Springs from the dealer too, or a lot of people are fitting Eibach springs as a better alternative... available from LMF at around £150 for a set of four.

    How to do it is here...

    Post number 8.

    It's fairly straightforward, to do as well
