    Best Susepension Kit for Astra mk4?

    I have a 1.6 & plan to put turbo suspension legs, brakes, hubs etc inc rear axel. So i believe that i will need to get the turbo uprated suspension kit then. Wots the best to buy? I have had Koni's on my mk3 & they were good.

    There isn't one best suspension kit . The best ones are Eibach, H&R, Koni .

    Irsmcher ones are a good compromise in that they don't make your ride too harsh, too low or invalidate your warranty.

    I've always wondered about Knoi's. How do you adjust them while keeping them all level?

    They dont adjust for height, they adjust for rebound rate. There are 3 settings, soft, medium and hard. Hard is meant for track days and is really uncomfy, got mine on medium.

    Best kits are coilovers 75mm lowering....
    Not quite... but i think ~60mm lower with 18" (or is it 17"?) on an astra really does look quite nice.... Pity it's 100% impractical!
