currently have -35gmx springs but the rear end is solid and every bump shakes up ure spine :(

can anybody reccomend spring sets that are a fair bit softer? yet still similar lowering? or will i have to get the dampers 2? cheers in advance.

dampers aswell cos they have a shorter piston in them so giving a better ride quality. just get rears if the fronts are ok mate and give it a try :D

you dont necesarilly have to go for gmax, but i'd advise it, they will work better together.

gmax springs are designed for gmax dampers but mix and match can work just aswell if not better.

see whats out there mate and dont be afraid to ring up and ask the guys selling em. its their job and they will know better than anywhere else :D

right then, a mate has offered me a brand new gmax -60mm full suspension kit. but atm its a 35mm drop and the fronts foul only on full lock, is there anyway i can lower it to 60 yet keep the 16s without lots of arch work? would a spacer make any difference? cheers in advance, steve

im not a genious but i'd say the lower you go the higher the chances of needing to get those arches out and hack them about a bit
