    how much and where to go to get coupe lowered

    im thinking of buying some lowering springs:-

    http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/p...at=2235&page=1

    was wondering how much some one would charge to fit these and if anyone knows who would do it in my area i live in doncaster south yorkshire

    also is it a big job to fit them myself? thanks.

    Vauxhall Astra G 1.6/1.8 04/98- 40mm Jamex Lowering Springs

    Save £40 and take it to a garage?

    EDIT: Just realised you live in Donny, So do I... There's a few garages around, my grandad knows an experienced mechanic who runs his own garage in Armthorpe, He replaced my coilover for £45 in total, must have took him no more than 15 minutes! And he did that in my driveway.

    Can get his number or location if you want me to?

    If you change the springs yourself, it will take 1-2 hours.

    Easy if you know how, i got me mate to help 1st time, but now i know what im doing. So maybe watch a garage change them, then you will know for next time. There only like 4-5 bolts in front suspension, and 1 in the back that needs taking out to change springs
