Right my housemate is looking at getting a decent suspension setup after his standard springs decided to snap while driving

Abit confusing though as there are kits which need to know if the corsa c has factory fit sports suspension.

Any ideas why?

sports suspension lowered the car by 10-15mm. They're probably the same kit, but they have to advertise them differently as if your 15mm down already, it's not going to go down as far as a standard sus'd car would.

They have a different part number though Rob, and both kits say they will lower 30mm?

well if you start at -10 then maybe the standard sports one will only go down 20 for example. so when your car is next to a standard Corsa C down 30 they both look the same?

ok now i know why.

The sports suspension uses a 14mm bolt whereas the standard uses a 11mm bolt ( for the rear ) so thats why they need to know
