    what size tyres do you have fitted? you should be able to drop it a bit easily enough with no rubbing, just depends on the size of the tyres you have on
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    i needed to get my back arches rolled and use 215/35 tyres when i put my 18" vxr wheels on with a 40mm drop.they still catch on the back bumper bracket slightly when fully loaded.If youve still got the original 225/40 tyres on them then you will not be able to lower the car at all as the tyres will sit against your back arches and the car will be undrivable.
