    Springs

    I changed my std springs to Eibach a couple of weeks ago and when looking at the std ones when they came off the car they are bowed. If you stand them on the floor the top is out by approx 10mm??

    Has anyone else come across this, I've never seen it an any other car I've had over the years.

    My car is an Astra H cdti sri 5dr on 55 plate

    I have my standard springs in the shed but never really paid much attention to them

    I dont quite get what you are saying, do mean the eibachs are only 10mm lower side by side?

    I think he means the top of the OE spring is 10mm to the right of the bottom.

    No idea of the cause mate, so pointless post, sorry

    Eibachs are fine no problems.

    I just noticed looking at the std ones when I took them off they are bent like a banana.
