    Question Suspension Upgrade

    So I'm in need of a new rear stocker.
    Advice on here says to change in pairs.

    If I was to upgrade the suspension an axle at a time to Bilstein B8's Would this be a problem?

    Also how much of an effect would it have on the ride comfort? Lots or Little?

    Thanks,



    Craig

    when you say upgrade you mean change the springs as well??

    if so, then the sprots lowerd springs ( aftermarket) are only avaliable as car sets and should be changed as such..If you just mean dampers then as long as it's an axle at a time you'll be fine..changing dampers does little to the ride comfort..springs have a greater effect..

    The final plan is to change it all, but with this bombshell of a service It's easyer to change in parts.

    Would there be a problem to run Bilsten Shockers with Standard Spings Till the funds become available?
