    Question Astra GSi Lowering

    Hi,

    im looking to lower my GSi T and was ready to buy a set of Eibach Sportsline springs. the ones that lower 45-50F and 30R.

    Whats everyones experiences with these? will it be too low?
    Dont want it scraping the ground but want it to sit nice.

    Just looking for opinions really.. and possible pics of the result if your using these srpings.

    thanks in advance.

    Ryan.

    I'm using 50/30 Eibach sportline springs with standard (LS) dampers. I have not scraped anywhere yet including Maccys rediculously high speed bumps. No problems with multi story car parks either. The only thing I have to be careful of is I catch my rubber splitter on the front of the car when I park it at work. It gets caught on the kerb if I pull forward too much, which in your case with a GSI bumper being so tall it'd actually be the bumper that kits the kerb. So providing you don't park face on to the kerb you'll be fine.
