    I was not happy the 1st Time, So i did it again !!

    Lowering my Astra H Sri Cdti That is ....

    Why do a job once ! When you can do it Twice for even more money

    I Lowered my Astra originally on -35mm Apex & Standard Shockers ..

    This was the result ...



    I was not happy how the rear was sitting .... So i left it a few hundred miles thinking it may settle further .. It Didn't..

    So i invested in some Spax Shorter Shockers with Damp & Rebound adjust, Fitted those & it came down a fraction further .. I was Still not happy with the result

    So i have now invested in some -45mm Pi Springs & this is the result..


    Much better in my Eye's & after having a test drive , I would say it drives & handles better

    And this was it originally when purchased ..


    What do you think ?

    Apologies for the Sub standard Pics but they are off my Mobile ...

    Cheers

    Nice, front doesn't seem to have changed much between the two. But back end looks much better with the car looking level.
