    spigot rings?

    would badly worn spigot rings affect the handling of my astra? she passed her first mot yesterday with flying colours so i would doubt its suspension or bushes. tyres are good with the correct pressures in them. help!

    No, spigot rings don't get worn, they don't even move.

    Id suggest u start looking elsewhere

    You'll have to be a little less vague though....what exactly do u mean by "affect the handling" ?

    What problems are u experiencing?
    Does it happen in every gear through all the rev range?
    Does it occur every day no matter what the driving conditions are like?
    Any strange noises whilst driving?


    What size wheels/tyres are you running? Are they balanced? ie does the steering wheel shake above 60/70mph?

    I have one missing and it makes the steering wheel vibrate as if the tyres are out of balance.

    When was the last time you had the tracking done?

    It should really be done every 6 months
