    Astra SXi Standard suspension

    Since I have changed my suspension to coilovers, I have a set of SXi shocks/dampers & springs, will these fit on my mates Astra Sport? (1. If they will would there be any problems with them being used on a bigger engine car? because mine is a 1.6?

    The fittings and such would likely be the same but then only thing you would have to watch out for is the difference in the axle weights between the 2 cars. Do yours and his have the same number of doors and body type?

    I'm not an expert and i'm sure someone will be along shortly to correct me. lol

    it'll sit a little lower that's all.

    do you find your coilovers a bit hard on the front?

    TBH, I find them hard all round, it can be really uncomfortable sometimes. But I suppose, you get what you pay for....
