  • Coilover/DAP springs

    and correct if im no doubt wrong which i prob am!

    But with the ability of a decent set of coilovers to set the preffered height could you not create the same effect as the DAP springs of leveling the car out so the back back sits lower rather than the rake effect of eibachs?

    I mean you can set the front at x and the back at y, or would it not work like that?

    yes you could set it at what hight you like in the range it covers, but if not set up correctly handling could be made worse. top gear anyone.

      you can set each wheel at a different level, totally independent

      so yes you could even jack the left or right side higher if you wanted, like racing on ovals
      Whats next?!?!?

        indeed you could with a custom set of springs, however the astra has alot of rake on it for a reason.

          Our R series springs are raked, but less than Oe and Eibach.

          Yes you can with adjustable , but it depends on the kit you buy and how much range you have on the rear.

          The Ast set we do is a coil over on the rear.

          Bear in mind when you change ride height on street adjustable kits you also alter Geom and spring performance.
