    get the shocks and springs from an elite - very soft ride and evens out most bumps - it wont lower your ride - it may even increase the ride height

    again its all about the application and what your after ..... as far as a soft and comfortable ride goes i've no complaints in my elite

    but the other consideration is also wheel and tyre size as these can also affect the feel of the ride

    Yea B4's and elite spring should be an improvment, that and slow down going over speed bumps too. We have loads in my town, I refuse to go over them at any more than 15mph, I dont care who I slow down. I see idiots not slowing down for them, then they wonder how they got broken springs come MOT time. Pair of front b4's for sale in the for sale section at the moment.

    I got B4's and Eibach Pro's on recommendation from the forum. The ride is so much better than the originals.

    You wont go far wrong with this setup mate.

    Yeah the pro kit does lower it, but even so, the ride is so much better. The orginal springs would rattle my teeth going over a bump, these ones are so much smoother.
