    Default Request and suggestions (Lowering)

    Had the Veccy C 2 months now, enjoying every minute still but fancy a bit more sturdier suspension in the bends and for the overall look of the car too.

    The grand plan is to fit Snowflakes but thats not going to be until my insurance claim is sorted, so i was going to have the car lowered 30mm on the standard Sri prefacelift alloys.

    So suggestions for shocks and springs had eibach on my astra anyone use them here?
    Picture - anyone got a 30mm drop on the standard vectra sri alloys?

    Cheers Gregg

    Eibach springs / Bilstein dampers and you'll be a happy bunny I'd say.
