Re: Shocks With Superlows

no.

Technically you can, but the shocks you have for stockers are designed for the ride height that you got from the factory. You would be compressing them and reducing the travel of the shocks internally. That will cause you to bottom out more often. The shocks will wear out faster.

It is recommended that you change out the shocks to a set that will be appropriate to ehe shortened stance.

Re: Shocks With Superlows

Thanks lunatic,
i Think i will put the superlows with the standard shocks untill they die which shouldnt be to long. then when i have the cash get shome shocks.
Will using the standard shocks with the superlow's affect the performance of the springs when i install stiffer shocks afterwards?? Or will it not matter?

Re: Shocks With Superlows

quite possibly, as if you are pushing it hard etc... you may not hit bump stops like you could/will with the stock shocks.

but having said that, i used to bottom out more often with the stock suspension setup then what i do now.

On the way to work there is a nice S bend, and since i have put better shocks (konis) in the rear it makes a difference when i hit some bumps in the corner. the back end doesnt seem to bounce around like it used to. i will soon replace my fronts with Koni adjustables (yellows)
