mk4 astra?

Only difference is fitting the arb drop link back on, still very similar to fitting corsa ones

and all you need to take of the standard suspension is the top mounts and bearings

I had it laser aligned a few months back i assume it will need doing again after the coilovers are on?

How much of an issue is it with coilovers? i.e. will it acctualy destroy tyres or is that worst case senario?
