hi there, i'm new, been trying to register for quite a while but didn't know how to as i only had a hotmail address

anyway, i just wanted to get some pics of corsa's lowered 40mm on 15'' alloys to see how much the gap is between the arches and the wheels.

heard that the gsi is lower than the standard corsa somewhere? dont know if this is true, but if it is, then please could you only put up non-gsi's

cant lower the car more than 40mm i think as my wheels have a terrible offset (35mm), got told at the time that they would be fine

thanks for all your help. Ben.

thanks, this is the height of my car at the moment, and i think if i lowered it any more than 40mm then the arches would rub on the real wheels? with the rubbish offset.



yes i know, 4x4 lol. but i have to wait till i get paid to get some springs to quickly lower it before i get shocks too.

christ you are a cocky one.

He posted pictures of 40mm, yeah it wont look correct because he is missing an interior but that isnt the point. He posted a picture of 60mm too (as he stated) so dont give him crap.

60mm assumes the standard weight so if you have ICE its more, if you have been on a diet its less. Its just a guide. Generally the public will respond better to measurements in distance rather than spring loading tolerances as a factor of corner mass.

ps. that black one just needs doing, less talk more action
