    How much for standard Coupe Suspension

    I'm on the verge of having new suspension fitted to my car. How much do you think I can get for the standard sprints and dampers for my Astra Coupe Turbo? Thanks

    Some of the Coupés had iffy suspension components that can be changed under warranty. Has yours become bouncy and wobbly then?

    I wouldn't bother selling the old parts myself just save them and swap back when your done so your not limiting your selling market

    Could donate them to Tyrone, then he could sell the Koni stuff at his leisure and pay you back once he has done that ....... kill 2 birds with one stone

    Just enquired at Vauxhall to find out how much it is brand new so I could guage a rough second hand price. These are the prices they gave me:

    • Front dampers each £55 + VAT
    • Front springs pair £120 + VAT
    • Rear dampers each £36 + VAT
    • Rear springs pair £139 + VAT
    If you do the maths then that works out at over £500. Is this right or have they totally over quoted me?

    Factory parts are always going to be well over priced this is why on my old MK3 gsi when the suspension was knackered although I didn't want to lower it it was cheaper to buy a aftermarket kit
