    Any Pics of Astra G's with Eibach pro-line springs

    Hi,

    Does anyone have ay pics of Astra G's ideally the SXi or SRi with 16's Eibach pro-line springs fitted.

    Also can you comment on the comparison betwen the pro-line -30mm and the standard SXi/SRi -20 springs. They are for my partners car, btu she doesn't like my suspension with 50/30 Eibach's and GSi shocks but they are a bit more firm than the standard SXi/SRi shocks



    Thanks

    Mark

    Cool thanks Donny. I am thinking about ordering them but wanted to see how the car looked and how the ride compared to the standard setup. Her car is the same colour and has the similar wheels but 4-stud so at least I can see how it will look

    I have Eibach 50/30's on my MK4 Astra SRi.

    I was looking for pics of MK4's ideally in standard trim and wheels with Eiback Pro-line springs as I was considering fitting them to my partners car. She doesn't like the suspension of my car so there is no chance I would fit the 50/30 springs, but I may have got away with the 30/30 springs. Although mine has Astra Mk4 GSi shocks so it will be a little more firm than normal.

    For now I have just finished replacing the rear springs with standard SXi springs. It will probably stay like that as she likes her comfort. Though if they brake again I will likley change them to 30/30's but need to see how they look on.

    If you can also give a comparison of what they are like for ride quality compared to the standard SXi/SRi springs

    Oh and what are FSD's.... I think if I was going to change the shocks I would get adjustables so they can be set to soft

    Koni FSD's are a model of shock absorber that are comfy yet firm and come highly recomended by myself and others
