I’ve got an Astra h active and got 17 penta and been given an option to put vxr shock absorbers and eibach spring wanted to know would they work and how low would they go.

Depends on the eibach springs, pentas are 18”, not 17, Sri wheels are 17

The Sri 17 aren’t that much different tbh, the pro springs should be a 30 mm drop from standard ride height, the vxr shocks will stiffen it up but retain a decent ride quality

Think I’ll super glue them or try and pack them up with some foam strips to make it harder to get them off.

If you superglue them on,you’ll have to replace them every time you get the wheel balanced or tyre changed

Nice on for that I didn’t think off that got some foam strips I’ll put inside so how low do you think my car will go with the vxr shock absorbers.

If it’s a 1.6, chances are it’ll go to between 25-30 mm, slightly lower than a vxr

That’ll make it a bit tighter, I run vxr shocks and springs on my 1.9 Sri and 1.7 van and the difference is night and day from standard

I’ve got the eibach pro springs with them aswell bit worried coming off a 2005 vxr will they still be good seen nothing but bad reviews on after market shocks.
