@Coops: Actually 17 inch were planned to be added. But I liked exactly THIS rim and back in those days I purchased them, 17 inch were not available in the "ONE" -design for the Corsa.

Nowadays if I look at it, I rather leave them in place instead of spending another 2000€.

@Ron Burgundy: It is. Don't forget, I have just 15" alloys. Maybe it just doesn't look like it is lowered that much. Plus: It is an adjustable shock absorber. You don't measure in mm like with lowering springs. Instead you tape the length of the screwthread.

@Drift King: Corsa that run in Brasil are made by Cevrolet. And in Germany every Opel tuner uses to add the Vauxhall wings. Like here in the UK you favor the Blitz.

I work for the US Army in Germany and wanted to see some faces wondering why they never saw this Chevy model before ;)

so if your measuring the screw thread, how much has the arch dropped.

my arch has dropped 55 front, and 60 rear and it looks like this:







that is on 16" alloys and low profile tyres.

A HOLDEN badge would have been even more funny. Most Germans not even know how it looks like.. they all just want Vauxhall emblems. :)

@Ron: Difficult to say as I never measured the arch drop with those wheels and tires before I actually lowered the car. I can measure from mid of wheel to 12 o'clock position of the arch if it helps you.

BTW, why is you car lowered deeper on the rear as it is frontside???

LOL yeah. I already got that. It is less the design but more the small size. I know...

But you guys need also to know that every change on your car in Germany needs to be legalized by the guys from the "TUEV" society. Those experts have an eye on modified cars and if they don't give their ok for your changes or you cannot show the proper papers your car will be taken from you until you change your setup in a way they agree to. We Germans need to show up there every two years...and get vehicle checked out by those guys.
