    Suspension advice

    Looking to get some 30mm springs (Eibach Pro Line Kit) for my 5dr Astra 1.8 Sport

    Now on Parkers it says mine has sport suspension fitted as standard, so does this mean 30mm springs won't drop it 30mm, as I'm guessing that's quoted as that drop from standard suspension?

    And also not sure about the axle weights
    i've got:
    1715
    2915
    1-0915
    2-0820
    on my door....so what does this translate into

    Cheers

    hi there
    if you have sports springs you are 20mm lower than standard and all new springs are quoted from standard so your 30mm springs will drop you a further 10 mm

    1-xxxx & 2-xxxx are your front and rear axle weights respectively so bear this in mind when choosing springs
