    Default Vectra B coil spring

    I have had to change the front coil spring on my wifes Vectra B, it seems strange though for it to have broken again, as it is not the first one I have changed, this one has replaced one that has only done less than 10000 miles, it is not that we live in an area where the roads are any worse than the rest of the country. I sertanly made sure the nuts would not fall off when I put them all back on the last time, heck were they tight. But all in all it only took me about an hour to change it and put it all back together, I feel a lot happier now it is done.

    Strange that Ed.

    You don't have speed bumps in your street either if I remember, as they hammer the springs.

    Perhaps when Larisa goes round the corners on two wheels it is putting more strain on the springs.
