    thanks rusty, its the only way to raise and lower your car to what ever size tyres you put on so it saves in the long run

    Hello,

    In another forum, I've read that some ppl with Astra G+Bilsteins experienced vibrations at speeds in the range 80-95mph. could that be down to improper fitting? one of the guys has tried literally everything without a solution...

    what's your experience?

    Cheers,
    Kakourdos
