Shortened Rear Shocks

What shocks are everyone using with superlows, particularly the rear ones as I've heard of nasty things with springs falling out when going over sharp rises if standard ones are used

So everyone list what you're using and prices along with comfort level, don't bother if you've had ur shocks rebuilt, heard enough bad things about that too.

Yes well I have wasted $90, the shockies I bought were the exact same things I had in there, and as you have just said there is no way for the springs to come out as they are seated very tightly.

I am however impressed by the new stance my car now has, even tho the ass of it is lower than the front she looks sweet as.

frown Hey Ed

Hey ED,

So by the sounds of things it didn't go to well.Remember I said to get lowered shockies so when on the rebound they wouldn't bottom out and pop out through the top causing that rattle.I thought I said about the pedders ones but I think you said you already had them in the boot.The shockies you brought should be about 50mm shorter in over all shaft length and body.If not then you have been given the wrong ones.I'l see if I can dig up my old ones and show you what I mean.

Cya Lukey.
