G&M Suspension Fitted
Got the kit fitted yesterday. Many many thanks to Jason77 for helping do it.
The car hasn't dropped the 40mm stated on the box, maybe it'll get lower, who knows.
The ride and handling can now be described as "tight". I also did the front wishbones at the same time. 3 of the 4 shocks I removed had no rebound pressure so I'm surprised my car handled as well as it did.
Anyway, can't fault the kit and it looks very good with blue struts and red springs.
Even if it turns out to be no better than new standard suspension, it was certainly a lot cheaper. About £280 inc Vat for 4 shocks and 4 springs.
If you need new suspension I would consider this kit. On my "test" around the back roads of Knockhill Race Circuit, the car seemed very stable and didn't bottom out when I flew over crests. The back end "wiggley wiggley" I suffered from seems to have gone. This is probably because the rear shocks I took off were cream-crackered.
The steering feels very direct now too, especially at higher speeds.
So my verdict is definately worth the money. Can't really do a fair comparison to standard as my old suspension was really broken.
