    Quick Lowering Questions

    Just ordered these:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Astra-G-Vogtland-Good-quality-lowering-springs_W0QQitemZ120373627660QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK _CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item120373627 660&_trksid=p3911.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1683|66%3A 2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

    My astra is a 54 plate 1.4 16v, heard these springs were good quality and that under 40mm drops you don't have to worry as much about changing the shocks is this true and they will fit ok?

    Any idea how much a garage would charge to fit the lowering springs as well?
    Kind Regards,

    Heard from a few members on here they we're decent for the price. Is it a big job to change the springs am I looking at a small fortune for the garage doing it? Do i need anything else other than the springs or anything to keep in mind when i get it done?
    Kind Regards,

    you need spring compressors to take the spring off or you could really hurt yourself, you could also use a couple g clamps as well i suppose

    I'll let the garage do it, I'm that sort of person who will mess it up however easy it is
