    Smile Astra H sporthatch with xp

    Hi, im looking at getting my 56plate astra sri sporthatch lowered but only want to use lowering springs.

    Can anybody point me in the right direction to the best make and also how far i can lower it with just spring.

    Any pictures would be great.

    Thanks

    After trying springs alone, then adding uprated shocks, you'll be missing as trick in respect to handling but I am more than impressed with my Jamex 40mm springs (most suggest 40mm is the max you should go on the OEM shocks for ride quality purposes) at around £65 or so delivered.

    Many swear by Eibach but they're at least twice that price...

    A full set of Jamex springs and matching shocks is around £200 delivered and this is what I have now, an outstanding setup compared to the OEM parts, and not harsh in any way with the shocks fitted.

    LMF Vauxhall is you best bet. They do a good selection of lowering springs and alot are reduced at the moment too! You need to make sure you get the correct ones for your engine size! Jx
