    Question Does my Astra G Sport have -20mm springs as standard?

    Hi guys,

    I have an Astra G Sport (1.6 16v) and I am wondering if this model came with the same standard lowering springs as the SRi and SXI?

    Many thanks in advance
    Mat

    i believe all sports came with lowered ("sports") suspension not 100% sure if it was 20mm lower but don't see why not!!

    the ride in my 1.6 sport is certianly stiffer than that of my old mans astra club!! and they sit roughly the same height even though his car sits on 14's and my 15's

    This is mine 02 plate 1.6 sxi on standard "lower" suspension. It does sit a lot lower than my granddads 2.0 D CD, and it's a lot firmer ride.
