    Hi im looking to lower my Astra MK4, but not sure what make and model of springs/shocks to use.

    Looking to go around 40mm drop max

    Dan.

    i am looking at lowering my sri too but after what i seen today from kev's car and that he could not get into the rollers without raising his car to the max on coilovers so i think i may go for them as otherwise i dont think i would get my car into the rollers with say a 40 mm drop.
