    Default some expert advice

    I't finally looks like I'm gonna get paid out for the accident that wrote off my n reg corsa sport

    Anyway- the upside is that it now means I'l be replacing the springs and shocks on my vulcher around xmas so am trying to get my list of bits needed :-)

    so my question is what other parts should I have done at the same time??

    so far I've gathered that its advisable to change:

    -the noise reducing spring sleeves- front and rear? - top and bottom??
    -upper front shock mounts
    -front drop links
    -rear upper control arms

    I've also read its worth leaving it a couple of weeks before getting the 4 wheel allignment and camber adjusted back to spec at a garage that users hunter equipment.

    so my question is- what if anything else should need doing or is best doing just in case while the beast is stripped down??

    also not wanting to lower much so gonna go for sri spec springs by lesjofors and b4s which'll give a modest 15mm drop on my elite, or might stretch to eibachs and the 30mm drop cos of all the positive feedback about them on here- not susre yet.

    so last question is- has anyone had lesjofors on their vectra c or had a saab with them on??
    I believe they're OE saabs and are tuv approved in germany so assume they're at least good.

    thanks in advance my learned brethren
