Member car:

Van & astra GTC

I thought it was a mix of 147/156??

Chassis is a 156SW with a load of 147 bits added on??

Either way, based on a car from the stone age's. Probably a good thing actually.

I know this has been said before, but i just wanted to share my experiences.
I am hoping that my future choice of suspension will improve things. Ive heard bilstein shocks give a more forgiving ride to koni's. So along with eibach springs im hoping things will improve!!
I happened to park next to another Gt at work the other day another jtd, which was on the 17 inch alfa multispoke. And looking at the 2 cars side by side, the car on 17's seemed to have a lower centre of gravity, and still managed to look good!!! Not to mention having more tyrewall between rim and road for better comfort.

Which style of 18" wheels were they? The blackline 'teledial' style, because if so you could make your money back selling them to me! PM me if you are interested.
