    Vehicle : Astra GTC VXR

    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2.0t

    Year : 2013

    Default Torx/Star sockets, NEEDED ASAP.

    Hello fellow members, right it's not a problem that's why i have put this here but i do need your help if possible.
    This weekend i am supposed to be taking my coilovers off the car and putting the original shocks back on but with my new PI springs, now the mechanic at work who was going to lend me his sockets so i can take the rear shocks off wasn't in at work today due to some personal reasons.
    Has anyone around the Luton, Dunstable or surrounding areas have or know someone who has got some that they can lend me for this weekend, car is booked into Vauxhall next week to sort my auto headlight leveling out as it's stopped working but that will be totally useless if i can't get the suspension done.

    I would be really greatful if anyone could help me out, i would go buy some of my own sockets but it's a bit hard when i'm broke and payday isn't till Tuesday.

    Thought that might work but wasn't too sure.

    Your the only person thats said that, everyone else says how good they are.
    I know that other people say go for Eibach's but i had a set on my old Audi A4 and they made no difference in height or handling compared to the standards.

    Thanks for the offer Paul but circumstances have changed, gonna have to sort it out next weekend now as the old man had his Omega repaired yesterday (crank sensor) but the garage have done something wrong and the engine is now knackered (all the water and oil have mixed) so he's having to borrow my car.
