    60mm spring?

    hi
    i have 17" wheels on an astra mk4, just wondering if i will be able to lower my car 60mm front and back comfotably with them size wheels?
    im just wanting to put my car as low to the ground as pos and being able to have people in the back aswell.
    if i do lower it that much is it easy to bottom out?
    if any1 can answer them questions that will be great!
    cheers

    Ye m8,it will be fine,but you'll have 2 change your shocks for that sort of drop,get adjustable Raceland Coilover off ebayinstead m8.
    As with any drop you'll be more likely 2 'bottom out' all depends on how you drive & the quality of your suspension setup really.

    Personally i think the G-max springs are shite,only had mine open 2 months & iv ordered Coilovers already.
    The Raceland Coilovers are 0nly £140 inc delivery if your a member on here m8,you aint gunna find a set of shocks & springs (brand new) for that.Must be atleast 50 people on here with them too,so cant be bad,lol.
