    Angry Bearings on front strut

    The top bearings on front suspension have worn causing the spring to cease for a sec from lock to lock making a knocking noise. (vectra c dti). Changed the front springs a few weeks ago, noticed the bearing a bit rough . The stealers want 33+the vat each!!!! Theres a recession on dont ya know. Anyway oiled and greased the pair , bliss for about 2 weeks now noise is back arghh ****** car. Any suggestions on source,in these apart from the stealrs . Also changed the rear shocks and stabiliser bars still got a knock from rear n/s. Cheers folks........................

    Don't know where they're getting £30 each from mate, ask around other dealers and see what they say as I got two for about the same price as above.
