    In fact, it's lower than that even.
    It's 20mm lower than standard.

    ak sure chap when ordering not that it makes to much difference, some comapnys measure the drop on a astandard astra, and other on a sport/sri set up, so they might be 20mm out

    i it says goes down 30, it may go down 30 or it may go down 10mm if you get me

    That's a good point, in short they may not take the standard 20mm drop into account, so you may be paying for 30mm lowering springs and only seeing 10mm...
