What's are the best shocks and struts for lowering springs?
The adjustments are for driving outside of normal commuting. Autocross, drag strip, and special condition spirited driving could need the adjust ability. Those Tokico, Koni, and Bilsteins are built so well that they can be used street or track without adjust ability. From what I can tell, a designated race car will use all the adjustments you can provide.Why you never consider adjust ability ?
Yes that's what I meant......Factory what?? Oh, anything is bettter than the factory struts/shocks. The only problem with them was that the whole set up is like a 4X4, off road, jacked up, crazy lookin' sh*t.
It handle like a dream. I really wish I could put you behind the wheel. I'm not just saying that to justify my choice of parts but it handles great, perfect.Yes that's what I meant......
Btw rob, how's the kyb shocks/struts with the ford b springs handle? That is the exact same setup I'm doing.
EXACTLY- My objective was to arrive at a soft, comfort ride, like an old Cadillac, but able to attack corners at a faster rate than stock. I use it as daily driver only.-Very happy, but was not an easy job for me to do-Did the work myself.Keep in mind you want your shocks and struts to match your lowering springs. The load rates need to match the mildness or aggressiveness of the springs. I was going to go with OEM Mach 1 shocks/struts for my H&R SS's, but after some research I quickly found out those shocks/struts wouldn't have lasted much longer than my stock setup. The much more aggressive load rate that the Super Sports make needed a high performance shock/strut, so I went with the Tokico HP's.
I'd base your selection of shocks/struts off your choice of springs and intention of your suspension - lowered daily driver, street/strip, adjustables for road course etc.
