it may well fit but you wouldnt want to do it.

the GTA suspension is setup with the damping and rebound and spring loading for a massive great V6 block on the front, putting these in a 1.6 would prove disasterous, you would crash and smash down the road and bounce around like an idiot over every pebble in the road and then probably get a massive case of the straight-ons next time you met a corner.

if you car isnt already you could consider the sport pack type option suspension or just splash out around 80 quid on a set of lowering springs from someone like spax.
