    Thumbs Down have to wait another week for the new suspension set up



    not happy, basicly on the way to the mechanics i was thinking, when i pulled off the old suspension did i sell it all complete or was it shocks and springs only (the car was only a year old then)

    well after a short while of pulling about it turns out i was 2x components missing which is a rubber that sits on top of the spring and the spring locator which holds the spring in place. i rang a well known vauxhall spares place in strood and when i asked could i only have the bits i need from the front legs they said "no it'll be a complete unit, and £45 each"

    really wanted to get it sorted today but i saw sence and rang a vauxhall dealer who can get the parts for me (£25 all in) but not til monday. car is now booked in for next wednesday so fingers crossed.

    i forgot that the front coilovers have camber adjustment and as its not been set to 0.8deg like the other side handles like a dog turd on rollerskates! ah well its only for a week.
