    astra mk4 van lowering

    Does anyone know of any lowering springs available for a mk4 van? It is a 2.0di. I know they are the same as the estate ones. I'm after as low as possible 60mm on the front and 40 or 50mm on the rear. Or something similar preferably. Dont really wanna go to the expense of buying coilovers. Ive rang a few companys and the lowest so far was 55f and 30r. Not low enough. Cheers in advance

    So the coupe ones are just standard? And straight swap?

    I'm gonna look into this about the coupe springs. Sounds good 60mm drop all round.
