    Well they would go on, but chances are they wont be right. The Coupes are 20mm lower than a standard hatch but im lead to belive that so too are some of the sxi and sri models? My brothers sxi certainly isnt any lower than standard so i dont know how acurate these claims are :?

    The thing you have to consider is the axle weights of the coupe they came off. If you put the springs of a 2.2 coupe on a 1.8 hatch it will probably sit higher than before, due to the extra weight of the engine and the big boot.

    In application guides, Coupe springs are always listed seperate to normal Astra ones. So no.

    yeah they are different part numbers... even the irmscher lowering springs are different between hatch and coupe

    don't think it would be wise
