Daewoo Lanos = Opel Kadette E 16V = Vauxhall Astra MK2 16V

The cars look different on the outside but they are the same chassis.

I use Lanos parts on my Kadette E and they work perfectly.

Hope that helps.

yes... the rear springs of BMW E30 and E36 will fit a lanos

i tried a set of OEM E30 6 cylinder version rear springs on my woo and they were too stiff and high that the ride was harsh and ride height was increased by some 20 mm

i have to try it first... i only tried the rear springs of the 6 cyl. version and they were too stiff and raised the car's rear end by an inch or a bit more

i heard an opinion from a friend in an other forum who told me that he used the e30 springs on his woo that had his car height increased but also told me that there is a two sets of e30 rear springs one is high and one is low and the low he also used but since he was using a 16inch rims and the low e30 springs the tyres was making a friction at the rear which we can solve by using 14 inch or 15 inch rims giving us a decreased ride height also a good stability
what do u think guys about that?

it's easy enough to buy springs from the UK but if you are on a budget either try to source them 2nd hand or go for the BMW rears
