    Default What Make of Suspension to Replace With

    I have a 2.0 dti 04 Signum with broken front coil spring, what make and model type have forum members used?

    The reason for the question is because the repair shop (the car has to go there, company car), have said their main supplier only has part numbers for vx parts and no after market coil or suspense parts are made for this new car. I even said I would pay any price difference but no joy still have to fit crap vx units.

    With your help I could print out details from any links supplied to prove the point what crap some people give out.

    Thanks in advance

    An update of the coil break to the car - it appears both sides broke at the same time. I just could not belive it when I saw the car on the ramp and the monkey showed me the both coils broken at the bottom, he said I was lucky not to be driving the car. He has been told to replace with vx parts just because my boss said so. It's time to break the car with misuse of the clutch and red line in first gear is my feeling right now.

    Another update.

    Got the car back today from the monkey garage and yes new coils fitted both sides.

    Good news ABS and traction lights now on and the drivers side wing mirror damaged, plus the car still makes the crunching sound on every speed bump and large pot hole. Well pleased, I am off to get ****ed.

    Question what could the garage have done to break the ABS and traction control systems?

    The brakes feel hard and unresponsive is this a side affect?

    first thing to do is take it back and tellm them to sort it out as it was all fine when it came in. sounds like they might of trapped or broke a wire it might cost them a few quid to get sorted
