front shock question
I have finally got all the parts in place for my rear suspension overhaul. Slightly dreading taking it on but there we are.
In the meantime I am moving on to acquiring parts for a front end refresh. With the rear shocks/springs, I have gone for KYB shocks and Suplex springs as a reasonable priced and close to OEM solution. I'm not after any lowering or performance upgrade over standard.
For the front shock replacements I need some advice.
I see that OEM shocks can be had for about 170 which is more than I want to part with.
KYB exel-g shocks can be had for around 80
Koni SRT.t shocks can be had for much the same price
Which of these two would be preferable when run with standard springs?
What is the recommended OEM type front spring for a v6? Can't find Suplex springs for the front end now that I have bought them for the rear....
