    Pics of My Astra, Before And After Lowering

    Hi there peeps, thought id post some pics up of my Astra G now ive finally made it look reasonable lol. This is the first car ive lowered, out of 3 so im chuffed now lol Ive previously tinted the windows, put the 17's on and got a new grille, as well as putting my sound install in from my previous car.

    Before Lowering:







    One of the sound install too lol, nice cheesey light too



    Now the pics of the car now its been lowered, only 2 at the moment, will get some more up when i get time during the daylight



    Pic of the car after lowering.



    Pic of the rear wheel after dropping the back end down

    More Pics:






    What do you all think, bearing in mind that ive only had the car around 2 months. Any suggestions on what to next, other than the exhaust system??? Also bear in mind my income is shockingly poor lol.

    Spax 60/40 kit, its 60 at the front, 40 at the back. But the back sits lower as the sub box weighs about 60-80kg lol, took 2 people to lift it, and considerably kills my MPG, but bass is gooood!

    It bounces a bit, but compared to some of the cars ive been in lowered 60 mm on g-maxx springs its nothing at all. it doesnt scrub and it hasnt bottomed out...... just yet!

    Spax 60/40mm spring kit. Mind, even though the ride is fine, and easy to put up with (slightly more bouncier than normal and more so slightly when it hits bumps, potholes etc)

    But im really suprised at how well the wheels fill the arches now, and also how the ride isnt really bouncy!! The wheels dont catch and it doesnt feel bad at all.
