    Default Rear Suspension bolts

    Just had a quick look as i need to change my leaky rear suspension and it appears not to be a standard looking bolt. More like a spline thing

    Any ideas? And would halfords stock them as im also thinking about buying the 150 piece set, even better would one be in the kit.

    Cheers

    You need an E20 socket and an 18 m/m spanner Phil. You might have a bit of a job getting the E20 socket though. Might need to look on the internet. Or if you have a very good tool stockest near you he might be able to help.

    you'll need E20 and E18.. both of which will come in the halfords 'pro' range of tools 'monster' set... they also sell them seperatly..

    they are TORX sockets, and it's worthwhile buying a set as the vectra is put together with an awful lot of TORX fittings
