on that note, will i have any problems with ride or handling or even height by leaving the standard rears in but putting King Low springs in? The guy I'm getting to do it for me suggested getting new rear shocks to make it as low as possible, but seeing as they're only just new ones in there now I don't really want to waste them.
well i know there not superlows but there almost as low as em.
my car is riding on stock shocks all round i simply couldnt afford to replace the shocks as well
theres nothing wrong with the way my car feels or handles its not stiff like my old XF was, but it is in no way a boat like it was before the springs / stock rear shocks went in (removed sls and fitted stocky shocks)
i gues it wouldnt really matter if you changed em or not but it may reduce their life span considerably...
how old are the stock shocks? if there almost due for replacement, it might be just good practice to change em for newies, if there good then leae em
well my superlows are in, and im pretty happy with the ride quality. nowhere near as bad as i was expecting, perhaps even better in some respects! the stock springs must have sagged and been knackered. pics soon...
I went to a trade night last wednesday and I made a point of asking the Monroe Rep. if it was crucial to install shortened struts and shocks after fitting superlow springs, and he said to just see how it goes, if it bottoms out all the time install them, but if it doesnt don't worry about it. He also said they are only shorter by 30mm so there's not that much of a difference.
