    Finally its lowered

    I finally put springs (40mm) on my car now. Took a while but I think they help the appearance of my car.

    What do you think

    Didn't think that was tracking. You sure thats not wheel balance instead?
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If you think it needs improving, go ahead. My auto-bio - http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/showthread.php?t=211041

    Looks nice mate, have you used coiloves or springs?

    OEM suspension is like having your car on stilts

    I lowered it on springs. I love it. Makes my car look meaner :-) Just wondering what to do next
