Additionally worth know is that Astra-H is CANBUS, Astra-G is traditional ECUs.

On the journey home I noticed  a clonking noise at the front of the Astra, similar to the noise on my Omegas when the drop link end bushes are gone. I cannot see any drop links on the Astra. Any idea what could be the cause?

Same place as an Omega ... at either end of the anti-roll/torsion bar  ;)

Once again, Haynes, removing the drop link on a new car, simply states 'unscrew the nut and disconnect the anti-roll bar link rod from the strut.' After 12 years out in the mud and rain I expect mine are rusted near solid. Any tips?

Spanners. hammer, blow torch, WD40, hacksaw, brute force and ignorance.  Not necessarily in that order Terry, but no different to any old car really.  ;)

 4.5" Angle grinder. You must have one, as you've got an electric welder.


You spent more time typing the post quoted above than you will removing both droplinks. Don't make this complicated!!

What Nick said.

You may have luck with the Allen key / holding the nut if u soak it in wd and wire brush the threads. However if it gives u any hint of fighting then see Nicks post. Just do it carefully so you donít cut the roll bar and/or strut link mount flange thingy. 👍👍👍

IIRC astra drop links have 16mm :-\ flats on the back to stop the ball turning
I have a thin spanner that i use for them

So do I, which I use first. But if that's at all difficult, I go straight to the grinder as it saves a load of faffing about.
