Hi pal, its on JOM coilovers. There only £190 from http://www.venommotorsport.com/ with everythin included. The back is wound all the way down but with the adaptors still in so i could lower the back even more if i wanted to and the front still has about 6/7 turns left if you want it sitting stupidly low ha!

Yer they are very cheap but are made bu the same people that make FK coilivers and simply change the colour and sticker! The ride is what is expected on coilivers.. alot more solid but after a few weeks they start to settle which mine are still doing! The handling is simply so much better! Over speed bumps the Astra's take the drop very well! I have a friend with the same coilovers on a VW Bora which is sitting higher than mine and has smashed a sump, had to put in engine raisers and notched the chasis, where as I havnt grounded out once except for the rubber splitter on the front bumper when going into my driveway :) Definately worth buying!!

Aup matey loving how low your car is, just on my quest to drop mine now in time for trax. Are these the ones you bought by any chance?

cheers mate.
yerr mate ther the ones, had mine on for just under a year now and had no problems with them at all. If you want it as low as mine you will need to take out the adapters out the rears because it never sat low enough for me on the back which made it look very nose heavy ha! very recommended tho!
