    are these any good?

    Having seen people's cars on here with springs broken due to "cheaper brands" ... I'd always be cautious over saving a few pennys.

    Personally I'd save for another month and get some Eibach/Voigtland etc

    Should do I'm running Eibach 50/30's on standard shocks. But I'd always recommend getting uprated ones although they cost a bomb.

    I would ask to find out who makes them. As it doesn't state. Evolution R are a company selling them not the manufacturer.

    I couldn't say as I've always got my mate who owns a garage who sorts me out.

    But I think you'll need a spring compressor for sure. Some WD40 and patients.

    Seeing as they state they fit all Astra G's whether coupe or hatch, and without any reference to engine size, axel weight etc then you'd be wise to look elsewhere.

    The reason these unknown brands are so cheap is because there is hardly any (in any) development work done to make sure the spring rates are compatible with the weight of the car pushing down on them. Zlets are heavier than 1.6 8v so how the hell they can make 'one size fits all' kits is beyond me.

    Correct development work to make matched springs ofr a given model unfortunately costs money, and that's why eibach, vogtland et al cost more doulbe the price of tat. But as with all things you get what you pay for
