    Vectra Irmy suspension for my astra

    Hey guys thanks for reading! I bought a full set of irmy springs and dampers off a GSI vectra and was hoping to fit them to my MK4 1.6 8V astra. Any one know if they'll fit before I make myself look like an idiot at the garage! cheers Andy

    Oh dear. . . I would'nt think they'd fit. If they did the weight would be all wrong.

    Best idea as the GSI is a LOT heavier than your Astra and would most prob looked more like a 4x4. Ade they should be perfect for yours as gsiand diesel used same as far as I know, (weight wise)

    IIRC Coupe suspension doesn't fit the hatch - shocks are OK but the springs are wrong. The are always listed seperatley in manufactures listings.

    Best stick to a hatch setup mate - get the right ones for your car (ie check the axle weights).
