    yes they would do the job. if you can get them the ones with two claws each end are safer.

    I think when I lowered my Astra, I just picked up a two-pronged set from Halfrauds. I had single ones before and they do slip as said above.

    Also as said above, do keep your head clear of them. When compressed they have a lot of stored energy and will go off like a rocket.

    I bought some from Halfords, they are made by Laser, perfect for the job and safe as they have two feet, cost £20 although I got trade card discount on the also. Remember to do up and undo them evenly and ensue you have the springs under tension with the clamps before removing top mount.
