    Default just what you need after Christmas

    Just found out that my 2.2 direct Siggy has broken 3 springs
    Im about to order a set of Eibach springs, as Vauxhall ones are a ****ing rip off.
    I need help ordering with the weight option:
    These are the ordering options...
    Front up to 1060kg, rear up to 1215kg
    Front 1061kg to 1130kg, rear up to 1215kg
    Front 1131kg to 1230kg, rear up to 1215kg

    The tag on the cars door pillar reads
    2050 kg
    3550 kg
    1-1030 kg
    2-1080 kg

    It's like double dutch to me so could someone please point me in the right direction

    Front up to 1060kg, rear up to 1215kg <---- i'd order these. The 1-1030 is the front axle weight and the 2-1080 is the rear. All the siggys use the same rears, only the fronts differ.

    I sympathise with you as mine broke a front one on boxing day
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    A loud bang as i was in it when it went. Just have a look at them, you will see if they are broken or not normally. You could jack it up so they extend to make it clearer

    It was last week, heading to work, just about to move off, turned the steering wheel and heard 2 clunks, not overly loud but enough to worry me, turned the steering the other way and the same. Took the car to my wife's cousin who is an ex-vauxhall mechanic. 2 front springs and rear left all had a piece broken off at the bottom. He wasn't sure if that was making the noise but then noticed the strut bearings were wearing as well on both sides, and the left steering rack joint was worn. What a bummer...

    She is still drivable but not for long, as all the other bits and bobs will start taking the strain of the breaks

    Depends. Its not really safe. Also the spring has been known to poke through the tyre wall. Mine is - but i won't as I don't consider it safe. hth
