    Default stripped my front suspension down today

    and i replaced both front springs and inner tie rods,and i have now fixed my suspension knocking.

    Check you've built the legs up correctly - not sure if Vectras will knock but Cavs used to if you got things wrong

    i have cured the knocking,the car was knocking very badly,it would knock if you turn the steering to the left and straighten up,but not to the right,it would knock when you pulled off,and if you eased off and reapplied the power,and it would knock if you reversed into a space and braked.

    yes,the bolt that goes through the rear end of the front arm bush (rear bush) was loose,what is annoying this arm was changed a year a go by nationwide auto centre,the arm was a pattern arm from partco/unipart. (it was done before i bought the car)
