Will these spring fit the Opel Kadett?

If so what effect will fitting these springs have, if also fitted with a set of uprated shock?

all depends on which engine you are using,if it's the 2.3 use the 700's if your using a manta 1.8 i'd use 500's.used with billies excellent

U sure about HSRs being 700 front? On a standard road car? We used to use 350 gravel / road events, 700 tarmac on the rally car!

So if this set up would be good for a road rally car running avo adjustables all round? 315 lbs front, standard rears.

Is it worth uprated the bushes to polyflex jobies? or just renew with standard bushes, gonna firm the ride up either way with suspension 26 years old.

At 250 notes for a full set, that almost exceeds the value of the car. Can't justify it mate! Would just like to tighten up the worn bushes I have at the moment.
