    Default Tracking and Shocker hell!!!

    Hey guys,

    Just got my vectra SRI back from the garage, went in this morning for 4 wheel tracking and the camber setup, got a call this afternoon saying there was an issues....

    My rear, drivers side for massively out of line, looks as if someone who had the car before me had put a standard, or random shocker on it, which didn't fit and is pushing everything badly out. I'm told that with it been the SRI and having a sports chassis, the shocks are different to standard.

    Has anyone else had this issue? So what im now needing is a new shocker, went to vauxhall and they said £72 + VAT for a proper one but been looking around and wondering if anyone knows where i can get 2 aftermarket uprated shocks (Bilstein) or something for a SRI with the sports chassis.

    Anyones advice and help would be great!

    Cos

    I have a set of rear VXR shocks and full set of springs in the house, good as new. Shocks covered 15k, springs 40k.

    They were removed due to upgrade. With the rear suspension Im sure they will fit yours. Put a thread up about it. i'd certainly let you have them for alot less than £72.

    I have just fitted a pair of Bilstein's on my GSi - They cost me £64.00 from Euro Car Parts - Very pleased with them

    Told dealer there was a handling issue - They said "We can feel something but visually all is OK" - I was convinced it was the shocks and so took the plunge - No real surprise to discover that the off side one had collapsed - Main stealers are like my ass
