    Default Signum rear dampers

    Well having spent a wad on front springs I've discovered today that one of the rear dampers on my 2002 Signum 2.2dti is leaking. A lot - it's dripping on the floor! Yes it is oil and not brake fluid - also checked by a mechanic mate.
    Doesn't look to be too bad a job, access to the top bolts might be awkward without a ramp or a pit. is my assumption right? The springs and dampers are separate on the Signum not a strut. What is the torque settings for the bolts holding the dampers?

    Very common fault on all vectra,s and signum,s mate, fortunately also one of the easiest to rectify , just enter rear shock absorbers into the search category and you will find plenty of help there , the standard vx units are rubbish at best and usually only last around 30-35000 miles , replace them with bilsten units a much better damper .
