    Fairly possible that uprated shocks would ease the front a bit for you - putting Jamex -40mm springs on my stock shocks was very very harsh. Put some Jamex shocks on to match and the ride is much much nicer.

    I have Eibach pro on my BMW, and Eibach Sport on my Astra H. The pro's feel pretty much stock, just not as much body roll and sits lower, with the sports the ride is a bit harsher

    I've got Weitec springs on my Mk3. The ride isnt bad, but it can sometimes be a little bumpy

    30/30 with 16" Corsa D alloys
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!
