    Quick question regarding springs...

    jus taken a car for mot, one of the coil springs needs replacing. Its an 02 1.6 8v astra club.

    Question is will an 02 coupe 1.8 coil be the same? Obviously i will be changing both sides.

    Thanks!!

    They will fit, but they will be to strong a spring rate and make the car sit higher at the back

    sorry worded the question wrong. its for the front struts, does this mean the front will sit higher?

    Thanks!
