get hold of a set of springs from the lwb, it will give you 1.5" of suspension lift.
a set of vauxhal astra rear shocks and some front strut spacers.

thats all you need.

You say "lwb" springs what are these? And does  gv springs for a vit, mean using grand vitara springs?

So a 3inch body lift hasn't caused you any trouble with break lines and the diff etc? Ad a further 1.5/2incb sus lift is ok too... With no further work??

So for a good suspension lift... You want front strut spacers? (1.5inch?) rear springs(from where?) and astra rear shocks. That is all?

Sry new to all this, any advice would be great thanks Tom
