    Default New shocks

    got to get the mot next week and got an amber for my shocks laste year.. to be honest they have been fine all year and had no issues with them whatsoever..
    so its due its mot next week, and cant be assed with the hassle of it failing for its shocks so just ordered the Bilstein B4's from proven products.. £72.90 delivered.. will be here by thursday.. excellent service..
    also seen some jamex springs on lmf but just wondering what they will be like as I havnt heard anythin about them for the vec c.. plus they are a 35mm drop from standard cars so i expect it wouldnt lower the sri by much.. any ideas?..or any experience with them?..

    Yeah, you won't get 4 Bilstein's for 70 quid including postage, but one the up side you will get a pair of shockers that will last.

    Are B4's going to be OK with the Jamex springs? On the LMF site, they say that the Bilstein B8's are the ones to use if you've got lowered springs? http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/home.php?cat=1444

    they should be fine as i only will have a 35mm drop... the b8's are for 40mm or more... well thats as far as i am aware.. sure someone can confirm..
    you can get a normal set of shocks and have lowered springs.. the b4's are just OE springs..
