    HELP! I need some advice on lowering my car!!

    Ok guys,

    i've got an astra g sxi, which is totally standard. its still got the 16" multispoke rims on atm (which i will hopefully change if i ever get hold of that much money :roll: )

    basically, i want to lower the car with the standard shocks on.

    i've been searching through the board for previous topics on this matter and there is a few but im still pretty confused!

    i definatley want eibachs because it seems from the previous posts that they are probably the best.

    ........but what i need help from you guys is to tell me what sort of drop i can get with eibach springs. i spoke to joerg and he told me about some 45/30 but personally i feel i would want something like 45/45. is there anything like this available? (joerg told me there isnt )

    let me know what u guys reccommend

    I'm 40 down on Pi springs and koni adjustable shocks. The ride is rather.... well, firm and its a bit of a job getting on my "dodgy camber" drive.

    Looks good though (I wont bother with a pic though, we've seen them all before! )
