Re: Vauxhall combo turbo

Looks great on the cally turbo wheels.

As said before what suspension have you got on the back? Been looking on a few different forums and folk cant seem to make their mind up whether its uprated corsa c stuff, corsa c sri back springs, mk4 astra springs or even mk4 golf springs!

Cavvy sri seats look comfy as well, are they a lot of work to fit?

Re: Vauxhall combo turbo

Im using standard rear shocks and standard rear mk4 astra springs but will be dropping it a wee bit more at the back if i can find the right springs

Yeah seats made some difference

Re: Vauxhall combo turbo

Is that just the OEM sriT springs bud? Sits spot on, got an fk 60 front 40 rear kit from a corsa c here. But worried that it'll lower the back too much.
