    Do I need to replace anything else while I am at it? I have a set of drop links to go on as well...

    What engine/bodystyle is it?

    just the top link says hatch/saloon/coupe and the bottom link states diesel models only

    Personally I think they seem overpriced - then again they maybe a popular name - i certainly havent heard of them.

    If your interested I can send u a link to a company I use where for £180 delivered u can get a full kit (shocks and springs) which lower the car approx 55/45 (or at least do so on mine) 40/30 claimed but its a bit more than that.

    They need to fit a 2.2 hatch. I have checked that the shocks kit fits, its just labelled wrong on the site.

    If you can provide a link to the kit that will fit my car then that would be great!

    did think it was for the 2.2


    Heres the kit i (and several other ppl) use http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Astra...QQcmdZViewItem

    2.2 aint listed but Im fairly sure the kit will fit.

    Maybe worth lookin into further to be on the safe side (fairly sure Ive sent u this link in a PM in the past)

    They're a good kit manufactured by a top company in Holland that makes quite a few brands of suspension - from smaller brands like this to high end brands - badged for differing audiences.

    If the kit fits the Z22SE then I'd be highly tempted to snap it up.

    You certainly did send me a link to that kit! I totally forgot about it!

    I did ask the supplier and they said that my car wasn't listed - however, if I could find out the maximum supported weight then I could see whether it was compatible.

    Floeg suggested that if a kit could fit the 2.0l 16v, then it could fit the 2.2l as the axle weight was almost the same, and this kit says it supports the 2.0l 16v - so I guess it could fit. Just don't want to buy the wrong thing!

    Well i just checked the kg figures on the inside drivers door plates...

    The 2.2 I want to put the suspension on says 1720/3120 and my 1.6 says 1680/2820...

    Since there isn't much difference would putting the kit you have mentioned be ok my the 2.2 - that kit says it will fit from the 1.6 up to 2.0...

    Need to get some stuff ordered since I want to get all my jobs done in one go! Help anyone?
