Question Shockers

After listening to the front end last night, I have come to the conclusion that I need to get new shockers at the front. Anybody got any recommedations for me, I was thinking of getting either Tokico (Does this add a ricer element )
:oo1: , or Monroe GT Gas (not sensatracs)

No doubt with shockies you'll get different opinions from everyone. But from my experience i reckon the pedders sports rider are pretty good, bit bumpy but definitly cuts body roll.
The pedders sports rider is good value in my opinion i got the lowered shock body GSR's for $360 for the fronts.

Koni's and Bilsteins are suppose to be the Rolls Royce of shockies but carry the price of a Roller as well.

If your interested in Tokico, i'd reccomend KYB's. Got KYB's fitted to dads EL and very impressed with their quiet operation and smoothness.

Bilstein Shocks Front Shocks Price $210 each
Rear Shocks Price $170 each
(Includes GST) Shipping costs $45 Interstate

This recent quote for a mate's EB wagon. $540 includes monroe "lowered shocks" f & r king springs and blocks

Hmmmmm......, being the very patient person that I am , I have just put a deposit on a set of Xtra Hevy Duty KYB shockers, and will also be fitting a nolathane bush set to the front sway bar as well.

Go Super Pro, not Nolathane. Look similar but are different. I had Nolathane in my car and they s*it themselves after a few months.

Nolothane is ok for sway bars and caster rods, but thats about the only place i'd put them. They're too hard for anything that needs to pivot with them.

My bro has a ZK with a 351.
It's scrubbing out a tyre, outside left.
So he figured, might as well replace all the bushes before getting the alinement.
So new every thing, all the red stuff. He said.
All on order now, see what happens, what sort of difference it makes.

yeah thats what i heard as well, SuperPro are heaps better than Nolathene.

Oh yeah i think Super Pro are Purple in colour for their bush's which adds abit of "sickamoit" to the under body of the car.

I think you can order them in whatever colour (within reason) you want.
