    Shortened drop links

    Got coilovers on and the front is pretty low.

    When i turn i have a clunking noise, Which is really embarrassing!

    I've had a search about and found out i need some shortened drop links. Where can i get these?

    I've looked at LMF but they only have some for the Astra G and mines an Astra H.

    Cheeeeers!

    i trust u replaced the bearing when u fitted the coilies?

    split it from the original top mount and fitted it ?

    if not do so..... as for only listed for G, as long as u have regular suspension and not the fancy IDS then G ones will fit.

    in fact G & H drop links are identical

    i bet thats what the clunk is

    its really a doddle to remove/replace suspension so u should have no problems removing it to check...if its not there, then finding a H in a scrappy and reusing the bearing should be relatively easy....or maybe the G may fit....not sure at this point in time

    droplinks are defo the same though. I use H ones on my G personally as they are a few quid cheaper from Vauxhall - identical and size and dimensions too
