Hi, someone from another site said I should sign up here as I couldn't bring myself to associate with the that is Migweb.
I'm a member of loads of other car forums, but my missus' gran has recently given me a MkIII Astra to commute to work in. It's a 1998 R reg (one of the last Mark 3s?), red (well, orangey red. You know that Vauxhall colour) 5 door, 1.6 16v Auto with AirCon and stuff. Only done 20k miles!
I've basically joined up to get some advice about suspension. The rear shocks are creaking, and I'd like to replace them with something that won't make the car continue to handle like a tiny dinghy in a hurricane. I've heard bad things about Vauxhall handling, but this car just takes the piss. I guess I should start a thread in the Suspension Technical section below?
