    Default What should I do???

    I have 3 options really (money is tight!)

    1 - Get this kit from LMF and get it fitted http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/product.php?productid=17177&cat=2273&page=1

    2 - Get the shocks replaced all around (Bilstein) and do the springs later

    3 - Just pay Vx to fit the cacky Vx Shocks and hope they dont break again!

    I'd get the kit from LMF,if you choose to get Vx to fit just the shocks it will probably be more than £300 fitted,no brainer to me m8..........

    I haven't followed what's wrong - if you need new shocks, get the Bilstein B4's. Around £40 each which I'm sure is waaaaaay cheaper than Vx parts, and probably better, too.

    Personally, I'd go for Bilstein shocks with Eibach or PI springs - tried and tested by many on here.

    My Siggy is in warranty with 49k mile son the clock. The 2 rear shocks have failed and Vx have declined to replace them under warranty as they are a Wear and Tear item.......

    Just looking at all the options, as the car is like a Pogo Stick with knackered shocks......

    I think Bobby T is the guy to ask, there's not much he doesn’t know about springs at present. ..
