    cheap coilovers will give you a rough ride mate, id go for a decent spring and shock combo if thats the route you want to go down! id put a set of nice wheels on it first, vauxhall ones tho
    1.6 8 valve, 5 door, soon to be a 5 studded let with crusty arches

    lower it on replacement springs + get some spring assisters to cope with the rear end weight (used for the extra weight from caravan towing usually)
