    Go for the Eibach Pro-kit, Sport lines may damage your shocks if you live in an area that has alot of bumps, pot holes, speed bumps. However alot of people have the Sport lines with no problems, or the full coil overs? Sportlines will give you 50mm drop at front, 30mm back. Pro Kit will give you 30mm all round. Handling is much improved, and a great mod to get!!

    Personal preference - either you want it all flat so 30/30 or want it to sit lower at front so 50/30

    The 50/30 is actually designed to give the astra a flat stance as the rear sits slightly higher.

    I thought that was only the MK4 - my MK5 with 35/35 sits lower on the front by the looks of it on flat

    Ah well the 1.9 does weight a tonne so it doesn't suprise me!

    It sits higher at the back on standard springs doesnt it?

    Iv got 50/30 springs in, and its spot on for the front, and leave enough gap at the back for me to have a full car/boot and not catch :-)
