New shocks
« on: November 05, 2013, 23:07:30 »
Got a leak so need to replace my rear shocks  :rolleyes: I was thinking of trying the Britpart Cellular that use a foam filler instead of the usual gas. Has anyone got any advice as to whether this is the best option or should I just stick to the proven old reliable Procomps. They need to be good both off and on road.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it ain't dirty, do something about it!!

Yeah, I know it's not white and it's not a 90 but my last one was :-)

As and when I have to do mine I will be getting bilstine's or koni's. Britpart are too hit and miss on quality are procomp. Pays your money takes your choice.

Terrafirma Prosports would be a good option too.

Though if you can afford it then Bilsteins, Koni or Decarbon would be a good choice.

In the process of changing all my shocks, got the rear done and gained about 5cm and thats with standard Terra Firma ones, so far so good with them, they have stiffened up the rear suspension nicely, though I think once I get the front done there will be an order in for some springs...
