    Another Coilover Thread

    Hi there.

    Just brought a 1.8 coupe and want to slam it. Ive done a search and nobody seems to agree on what the best fully adjustable coilovers are for the best price.
    I dont mind spending up to about 650 (including camber adjustment) but would prefere not to

    Any help would be nice.....
    Cheers

    even the fk ones are topping at 550 for the basic kit now. looks like you will be spending more than that unless you will fit them yourself. also remember to get the wheels aligned. thats a further 60 ish

    Gaz do a kit now, Ffoeg has them, I`m sure he`ll be answering your question when he sees it

    I`ve got Gaz coilovers on the rear, and am gonna get them for the fronts, but they will be a one off, so my price will be irrelevant

    Not quite, I've got Gaz fixed height jobbies.

    Their new coilover kit is still being tested/evaluated, and will be available very soon.

    I'll post more gen once I find out

    Thanks for the replys so fast.

    When I said 650 thats not fitted. I ment just for the coilovers and hopefully camber bolts. Im not sure on Vauxhalls but on my 200sx we use camber arms and pillow mounts to get everything back into shape. Is it the same for the Astra???

    you can adjust the camber on the front of the astra as standard, just not very much, whiteline do a camber adjustment kit which gives you alot more play, about 30, someone was doing a group buy on here,
