Good set of shockers for an EA with superlows?

Hey Guys,

As soon as my car is back on the road after the head replacement (which im nearly finished, just gotta chuck the inlet manifold and stuff back on) im gonna finally put the bloody superlows in... Now, all i need is 2 pairs of new shockers, what would you recommend for the best ride quality???

budget is probably about 350-400 bucks

Also, if anyone knows how to set the timing chain tensioner once its all back together can you please fill me in?? Dont wanna put it all together to have it spit something out hahaha

Thumbs up KYB's

I've got an EB Xr8 with KYB shock all round and low king springs. And would really recommend them for comfort and handling.
I reckon you could have them fitted for aroung the 350 mark. Their not expensive.

Excellent shocks

My EA has super low Lovell springs with KYB heavy duty shocks - good combo for those on a lower budget and can't quite afford konis, etc.
