    Default Sliding back end..

    Been noticing recently that the back end of my veccy seems to feel like it's not sticking to the road as well as it should be in wet conditions. It's most noticeable on roundabouts when the back of the car is sliding away when putting on the speed in the right hand turn.

    The car is 04 plate and approaching 50k so I'm assuming that something is worn in the rear suspension. Anyone got any ideas for me?

    My first thought was that the tyres were worn but they still have a good amount of tread on them.

    It's quite likely to be the shocks mate, they are a weak part and often give up. Getting to 50K on them is quite good !!

    I'd say the shockers- went through a stage of nearly losing the 3.2 on bumpy roundabouts at 25mph until the shockers were changed!!

    I'm having the same problem with a 03 - 80K Vectra. I have done a fair bit of research and beleave its the Rear Supension Arms - I going to replace them this week myself. There is a 2 - do on this webpage. Question? If you grip the wheel in the 12' O Clock postion and pull it towards you, do you hear a Clunk?

    Is it 'great' to get them to 96K without issue?

    Hmm, 98k on mine & no issues as yet, not mollycoddled either as the missus is forever griping about my chucking the car about & not taking it easy . Pity I can't say the same about the DMF!
