Probably, its the standard set up on a corsa, bar the adjustable platform.

The yellow coilovers aren't crap - they're still coilovers with features and warranty you'd expect from any FK suspension kit, they're just not on a par with the HighSport, KonigSport or the Silverline kits.

Out of interest, did you get the uprated springs for the front or did you just get the std Corsa FK coilovers?

the coilovers came with the correct poundage springs as they where specifically made for 2.0 corsa. I think u have to tell them wot engine u have in as they do a standard spring and also an uprated one

Yeah, just checking you had the proper springs

Normal springs on the kits are obviously matched to the cars the kits are designed for.
In the case of Nova/Corsa's with bigger (2.0, etc) engines, PVD can supply the higher poundage springs.
