King Pro Sport Coil Over shocks

I have just fitted a set of King Coil Over Pro Sport Shocks to the front end of my Falcon. They are the bees knees! I have gone from mild understeer to very direct steering - bordering on oversteer. Understeer is what the manufacturers set the car up with as this is safer for the average driver, but in a mild/wild performance car, direct steering repsonse definitely feels better. Mine is definitely only a mild performance car!

These coil overs are not cheap, but if anyone wants to improve their handling, give them a try. I'm now waiting on the back shocks to come in!

BTW, apparently these are the shocks/springs they use in the Brute Utes.

I got them at 'mates rates', but I believe that around $1200 a pair is the RRP.

*Edit* For anyone in the ACT, contact Revell Steering in Fyshwick 0262805610 for pricing/fitting etc. I'm sure that other suspension places can do them, but this is where I got mine done.
