I really need to do something about my front end. I have sl, or ssl (I can't remember) in the front and at the time I put standard front shocks in, not knowing any better.

I was looking at putting spacers on the shock towers, but short big bore shocks might be a better option.

 

Anyone used these? They are on the cheap end of the scale.

yeah check your bump stop clearance first. if it's so low(SSL) then you won't have any suspension travel. 

SL are barely an inch, most people cut the bump stops a bit(half an inch/whole inch off) to gain some travel .

 

those ULTIMAS have had good reviews from members here who've used them, i haven't used them, but they'd be at minimum twice as good as Monroe GTs

 

i've only had Pedders Big bore sports ryder i think, they are OK at controlling super lows,  but they better handle LOWs  (i won't use SL springs if i want to drive the car, they bump steer also due to being low, let alone bottoming out from low suspension travel and needing an expensive shock)

Give us a review after a few hundy KM!

Hey man, I've done about 300 ks so far, all over the beautiful roads we have out here at Bathurst 😜

Lots of twisty, windy and potholed roads on my way to work. I duck across past Tarana to get to work at Oberon.

 

So much better with the new shocks in it. Handles a lot better and I'm not slamming into the chassis/bumpstops everytime I run over a pebble.

 

So all in all pretty happy with them, especially for the price.
