Nothing unusual about the 93 (floorpan is essentially a vectra). It may also be worth while fitting new hand brake shoes at the same time, given that they're likely to be the original ones, and there's every chance that the linings will be starting to lift of. Even if they look ok, I'd still change them. The last set I bought cost under a tenner. *** Free account sponsored by SecureIX.com *** *** Encrypt your Internet usage with a free VPN account from http://www.SecureIX.com ***
