thinking of buying these but unsure if they will fit my astra or not.

For Sale - Astra GSi mk3 Bilstein Springs & Shocks
Bilstein Front Spings but only 1 Shock as a have misplaced the other
Bilstein Rear Springs and Shocks
I think they lower by 40mm
I think they are about 4 years old, but still work fin

as far as i can remember, BUT if they are 40mm down on a gsi they may be more on a standard astra.

although..... i dont think bilstein did a gsi specific kit! i have the bilstein kit on mine and it is ace! really good, handels nice and just low enough

Frankly, no!

You need the complete front leg's for the fronts to fit.

Buy a car specific kit - as I doubt you're planning to do tonnes to yours?
but the kit is the same? shure mine said it would fit GSi as well..... hang on....

From tuning.co.uk: about the bilstein kit....

"Full suspension kit for all Astra 3 models including GSi. The kit includes four lowered and uprated springs and all four uprated Bilstein shock absorbers. Available in two heights: Mega Gas lowers by up to 40mm and Ultra Low by up to 60mm."

so it should.....

If you just use the front inserts from the shocks , and fit them into your front suspension legs, that will do. That's what i'm doing with a lowering kit from a MK2 GTE 16v.

no, you can fit them. just change the inserts, and all will be well. all the astra,cav and calibra front legs are the same, its just the inserts,springs and hubs that vary.
