    ---Carl's--- astra se now on coils

    well ive had my car on coils for a few weeks now, just been lazy tho and havnt uploaded the pics lol

    they are astra hatchback coils i bought off a member off here, they fit perfect

    well, heres before ...



    then i lowered it all the way down, just the see what it would look like.
    its 100mm at the front and 50mm at the rear...







    i quickly came to my senses and raised it to 70mm at the front...

    Looking really good mate
    One thing though have you looked into having it corner weighted and also getting an Alighnment Kit you can get the alighnment kit from Demon Tweeks it consists of front camber bolts and front and rear shims with you having coilovers the best thing you can do for the best driveabilaty of it look into getting it corner weighted have a look on this link
    http://www.subituned.com.au/forums/i...owtopic=316414
    and mibbe google corner weighting honestly mate with coilovers it is essentiall to have it done after you have it done you will notice one hell of a difference especially if you get the alighnment kit also...
    What kind of coilovers is it you have on it mate? I have KW Variant 2s on my Astra Hatchback.
    Sorry for the long post but thought I would say about it!
    Really looking GOOD mate LOVELY SE you have there...

    Here's a good link mate for corner weighting described watch the videos that tell you a lot of good info
