Re: Shock Absorbers & Springs
[QUOTE=Cuore_Sportivo_155;910972]actually, you'd want the königsports, not the highsports as in the link to Gazzella. I've them fitted to my car also. The Königsport are front and back height + absorber stiffness adjustable, the highsports are only height adjustable.
I have raced moto cross and road racing at sponsorship level and i know what it takes to dial suspension. ( We have had mechanics from Ohlins, Showa and Racetech to do this ) No one off the street is going to buy car suspension and adjust them even close to what they are capable of. Just a few clicks rebound to much and your car can handle worse than it did on standard suspension. A non adjustable shock with good high speed bump settings is more than most of us would need. As long as the shim stacks can allow for that you will be good.
As for the stainless steel, nice to get if you have the extra cash as they have less resistance and therefore heat when working. If you are worried about rust on a normal shafts, the shock is filled with oil so every time the shaft is compressed it would be lubricated.
Looking at the standard shocks that have been on the car for the last 8 years, they look really good for not been stainless.
