    Lowered MK4 SRi on Bilstein B4 & Eibach Pro -30mm

    i had my astra lowered after the mot this morning. i have an sri so i know its lower as standard by 20mm, by looking at it it doesnt look right after itsbeen done. looks like the back has gone down by 10mm but the front looks like it has gone up. also i measured the gap between the topp of the wheel and the wheel arch, and the gap is the same as my dads astra mk4 ls. pics -

    Before

    And after -



    Lowered with Bilstein B4 Shock absorbers and Eibach Pro Springs -30mm.

    any one else had any issues? what could be wrong? will it settle down at all?

    It'll settle down a bit once it's been driven for a while.

    Unless its the camera angle? the first picture was taken quite low down and the second high up.

    It will settle after a few hundred miles though.
