  • Fitting Springs

    I'm going to lower my corsa but I'm quite keen to do it myself just because I enjoy it and because its around £200 to have them fitted. I'm thinking of going for Eibach springs, has anyone tried to fit these or any other spring set themselves? If so, any advice on how to go about it and possibly what kind of equipment you need.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi you will need a spring compressor for the front springs apart from that it is quite a straight forward job. If you don't have access to a compressor you could remove the from struts and take them to your local garage and just pay them to change the springs on the struts.
