Cause i cant find any on ebay and i only need the rears which i also cant find. cant find any info on here either which tells me how to mod the rears. all i get from people is cut them but defo not doing that!Just buy 6ns off ebay and mod them yourself rears are really easy and you can fit the fronts as and when you need/can be fussed to
why does the bloomin signature keep resetting?
Alright. From what iv seen on the lowering guide its just putting the k11 top mount ontop the fronts and drilling one of the botton mount holes out bigger? Seems a lot to take off the bottom rear coilover tho gona order mine from eBay on payday.£159 sounds a good deal for all four corners?They're easy to mod, there's a bit in the official lowering guide. Fronts are worth having for the right front/rear spring rates ratio or if you ever wanna go lower later. Mines on polo 6n all round and they're great

Na that's 159 brand new! Will have to take my time fitting them then. You just grind down the rears until they slotted in?Not bad, that used ones? And it is a fair chunk but mine are solid. It's the front modding you wanna be careful with really but as you said you may not use them anyway.

http://www.micra.org.uk/threads/official-msc-k11-lowering-guide-faq.54269/is there a thread where it shows how to fit front polo coilovers? im sure there is but i cant find it!
Yeh iv looked on the lowering guide but that only shows the rear. From a person like you who has fitted polo coilies all round what do you do to fit the front??http://www.micra.org.uk/threads/official-msc-k11-lowering-guide-faq.54269/
Theres some stuff in there. Otherwise use the search function to find the odd bits in peoples' blogs. I dont think there's a "specific" thread for it just some that cover the area...
Well mine were easy as someone had already had them on a micra, but what you have to do is:Yeh iv looked on the lowering guide but that only shows the rear. From a person like you who has fitted polo coilies all round what do you do to fit the front??
I might give the corsa fronts and polo rear a go. Corsa fronts seem a lot easier. Just gotta find them second hand. Once they arrive ill sort out a weekend to fit it all and get the wheels on.Well mine were easy as someone had already had them on a micra, but what you have to do is:
For the bottom mounting; extend/make a new hole on the bottom mount of the coilover to match the micra strut mounts (either cambered in like mine are, or if you want neutral it should be strengthened with a washer welded on as there won't be much material left spare)
For the top mounting; Find a suitable bearing/find a way to make the micra bearing work (washers to space out etc) so that you have a bearing on the top. then drill out the micra top mount centre bore to suit the new larger strut. I used bearings off a golf for mine and theyre great if you can get them, though the micra ones allow the strut through so make tightening onto the top mount easier if you can mount them nicely. I used golf bearings and then i have a small gap between the top nut and the actual strut top as they are separated by the rubber in the top mount, hard to tighten well unless you assemble on the car but plenty tight enough, or you can put washers/some pipe in to fill the gap (i may do next time i get the car in the air)
The top mounting set up i use is my own invention as the previous set up was a bit bodgy and i didnt like it, but it's really whatever works for you, if you trust it to work, do it
thinking of a little grinding on the rears is a obvious but hopfully not loads :/ and sorry i forgot you had polos rather than corsa so my bad for asking .Looks like it could and by the look of the rears (if the photo is accurate) you could use them all round. I'm not an expert though so might want a second opinion
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-...Make:Vauxhall|Model:Corsa&hash=item43bb8da8ae these seem like the uprated shocks where i dont have to deal with the egg shaped springsThey'll probably be the egg shaped springs so won't fit anyway....
