Ohlins shocks in AU?
I was wondering if anyone had fitted Ohlins shocks to their AU, or preffereably IRS. My mate has an R33 Skyline which came (not from factory) with Ohlins shocks when he purchased it.
The Ohlins are a harsh ride and a tad noisy so he removed them an fitted a set of Koni adjustables. They are just sitting in his shed collecting dust and are in great condition and he's willing to flog them off to me for a great price.
Which brings me to the point of why I made the thread. SKylines have mcpherson strut rear end, so it's coil over dampener like the AU double wishbone, so there's no problem there. I wonder what the chances are of them fitting though?
I will be getting King S/L (front) and SS/L (rear) springs before the end of the year and wouldn't mind putting some nice shocks in but don't feel like forking out nearly a grand for konis.
