    if its been lowered with springs, you may find they have the sizes written on them!

    if the springs have just been cut down, then buy new springs .

    This thread also needs pictures for anyone to really have a guess

    not enough is always the answer.
    id love to do a poll and see how many peoples car have actually been lowered by the amount stated on the springs they are running.
    measure the distance from the floor to the wheel arch and then go do the same on a standard astra and that will tell you how low it is.
    measure the distance from the centre of the wheel to the wheel arch and then compare with standard astra and the difference is how much your is actually lowered by.

    for it to be that low on 15's would sound like coilovers .. what the front look like isit a standard shocks and springs? or does it looks slimmer and look more like a coilover setup?
