GTV 3.0 24V

Think the General consensus is they are not very good
From various forums nearly all explain the same issues:
Over sprung and under dampened (Jap style)
Adjusters cease quickly especially when salt comes into contact with them (UK winter) and actually say you need to use a spray oil on them once a month or so.
FK do some Koinisport ones that may be better but you will need to ramp the dampening right up to be able to control the spring rate thus removing the point of an adjustable shock.

I have no doubt from what I have read that changing of springs down would go some way to help but the main issue would then be finding a different rate rear spring (KW?).
You could probably build better with a sleeve kit on some koni’s and an adjuster perch with spring from KW.

I have been looking at getting a kit made up by BR but have had to hold fire because of personal finances and needing a front v6 shock absorber (any state) to send them for measurements.

I put a set of these on my golf GTi, as the shocks on it were knackered anyway. But, i would definatly not recommend putting them on the GTV. Proper bone shakers and the car needs better.
