Allo People i was wondering how much work would have to be done when lowering a corsa b on corsa d (optional wheels). I want to lower the car about 40mm but how much work would have to be done to the arches. Ive seen a corsa b on the corsa d wheels at pv show and like awsome. If any one knows how much or how little work has to be done could you help me out please lol
cheers joe :)

It depends on what offset the wheels are, corsa offset is +49 sticking to that as close as possible will see you fine and you could get away without modding the arches. Do you know what offset those D wheels are?

40mm should be fine :thumbs_up: being Vauxhall rims the offset shouldnt differ to much, although the car will still look pretty high as its on 17's. OMP, Eibach, spax, Apex, jamex, gmax are all decent makes for springs.

If you've not done any suspension work before then yeah they will be difficult. For the moderate home mechanic they are easy.

LMF vauxhall do them really cheap last time I checked.

£247 without tyres which is a bargain.

If you have the tools and want to have a crack at the suspension yourself, give it a go. We're always here to help and tbh it's really not that difficult.
