    Boot lifters

    I am in need of some very substantial boot lifters for M1GST, I want to keep use OE parts but ubsure what would have the highest strength, any ideas on the strongest lifters in the vauxhall range? Omega estate?

    Irmisher ones would not be strong enough sadly...

    i would have thought the irmscher ones were stronger than all the original vaux ones, one irmy one on my boot held it up with a GSi spoiler on, not sure mate, the strength is printed on the side of them isnt it in N's?

    Cheers for letting me know the rating Can some one have a look on thier GSi to see if the rating is higher and by how much?

    Also Astra Estate ones? Although they maybe longer struts?

    Jace what do you mean by the old shocks?
