Re: shocks for superlows?

I got Monroe GT's in my EF because I heard that they still gave a good ride with superlows, and they do. They wouldnt handle as good as others, but they dont bottom out with a full car load, dont pound your ass on a long drive, and they are well priced.

Re: shocks for superlows?

well called a few places and decided on kyb shocks. just incase anyone else wants to know im getting part number 833001 in the front and part number 343327 in the back with kings superlows all round. the guys at kings springs were great, they knew more about kyb shockies than the guy at kyb did.

Re: shocks for superlows?

Re: shocks for superlows?

You can run superlows with standard shocks, however it will kill them faster, so if you just bought some recently you might be better to keep them and sell them, or keep them in case u want to sell ur car without the suspension setup?
