Hey all after about 6 months of hard work the Gabrials in the back of my car are stuffed and I don't like the bumps on hard take off....
What Shockers would you recommend for a superlow EB Falcon.
I want names and I want approx prices!
The front is still perfect and nice and hard so I just want to change the back over to something decent when I swap to LSD in Jan (was suposed to be last week but my mech was to busy)
KYB (if they make them for falcons) prices?
Any other brands that can take punishment?
I'd rather spend some cash on these because that back end will be seeing some real power in the comming months.
Breathe! It's only the internet....
I just had the same problem with Gabriel VST in the front of my XH.
The first set I bought, 1 unit had no rebound damping, so it was changed.
The second set I only hot a month out of, in fact they knocked a little from the start, and the knock just got worse. I didn't change them initially as I didn't think a new shock would knock.
Anyway, I now have Monroe GT gas and they are quiet. They feel very similar to the Gabriels, perhaps a little better on small undulations.
I wouldn't consider the Gabriels again.
For your application (superlow), you might be best off going for a Koni.
carazy and carsik, the Gabriel/Monroe product are mostly made for standard applications. They do have some part numbers for lowered but most spare parts guys don't use catalogs correctly. These brands are made to a price for the volume market which is standard height and in fairness to the brands do very well in that department.
I am told Gabriel do have a rear short shock for E Series part #658002 Big Bore. Also short stroke fronts part # 638458 EA EB ED,638459 EF EL.
Or someone mentioned above buy Konis and rid your troubles buy be prepared to pay $$$
