    Thumbs up

    Hi mate, the exact same thing is wrong with mine, only on right hand bends.
    When you turn does it feel like the suspension is a tad lose somewhere and do you get a knocking noise?

    It's quite a common problem on the Vectra's peeps. Most Vectra C's suffer from excessive tyre wear on the inside of the rear wheels. It's something to check regularly as far as I'm concerned.

    I can't comment if it's a problem on the Signum's.

    It sounds to me like the rear shock has leaked it's oil matey. I had this on my Vec and so has a lot of others.

    Get someone to follow you and see if the rear wheels are bouncing as you drive along. If they are bouncing it will absolutely eat tyres if not sorted.

    Thanks for that, but what about the knocking noise and the feel of loose suspension, any ideas?

    Another common fault on the pre-facelifts is a knocking boot lid. There's loads of threads on here about a knocking sound from the rear and most have been a faulty boot catch. Me included.

    upper rear suspension arms....the outer void bushes will be worn..

    change the upper arms and get the car aligned for toe and camber....use one of the local firms found on here www.alignmycar.co.uk to get a 100% quality job done..
