Springs and Shocks
« on: October 13, 2015, 17:49:15 PM »
Mine will need replacing soon so it seems sensible to do all four corners before the winter. My trouble is finding a supplier as most people do not seem to have them in stock. Anyone brought any recently...

Could you not get G Max then?! It will look lower than yours anyway Deano, as the V6 is lower to start with.
Lewis Hamilton said that winning his first race felt better than having sex. Kimi's reply to that was, Maybe he never had sex.

They look totally different to me. I think the Vectra A ones are the same (but check!).

There's plenty of places on ebay that offer international shipping. Is the part number "90268464" you're after?

I'm pleased I fitted a telly in my Calibra. It gives me something to watch when I'm waiting for the RAC.
