I'm planning on lowering my car 40mm and will be fitting new shocks too but what I wanted to know is would I need uprated shocks or would standard replacement shocks be suitable still for 40mm??
I am fitting brand new shocks anyway, guess when I get a spare minute soon at work I'll see what sort of things I can get through workIf you fit NEW standard but fairly decent shocks with your new springs it will be fine.
On the TD I fitted Gmax springs and new standard monroe gas dampers. It was, and still is, fine:up:
It is fitting new lowering springs with old shockers that will be crap- you will only have to strip it all down again to fit new dampers.
However, fitting a full matching kit is better, and if you can get one at trade price, I would personally go for that.
Trailing rear beam on V6, so rear geometry does not change regardless of ride height.You might need a rear camber kit too.
I know its not 4x4, but it may make it bad enough to wear the inner edge and look like its sitting on the piss
