    GSi Springs ?

    Read somewhere the suspension springs off the mk4 gsi are 30mm lower than standard astras, is this true ? Also if it is then would they fit any mk4 astra ie my 02 1.4 16v ?

    you could but due to the weight differences they would probably sit higher.

    The GSi or SRi Turbo springs are 20mm lowered from other Astra's. They will lower the back OK, but the front may or may not drop depending on the axle weight (ie the engine).

    I would hazard a guess these will work on a 2.0 16v or diesel and maybe some of the other models with cast iron blocks, but not the 2.2 or smaller engined cars. They may also be too stiff on lighter cars.
