    Default Shocks

    Can anyone recommend a good online store for shock absorbers and recommend some nice firm ones to go with my sports springs?

    nope sorry, but whilst we're on the subject, what springs have you got, and where did you get them from?

    cheers

    I have PI sports lowering springs, bought them from:

    http://www.performancecentre.co.uk/p...WU=CP01&LC=ENG

    But they don't do shocks on their own for the Vec c, except universal ones and I wouldn't have a clue as to which size etc i'd need.

    That's not really an option as the springs are fine, but with standard shocks the ride is odd, if I have to send the springs back, that's £80 to have the originals put back on whilst I wait for new ones, then another £80 to have them fitted + price of new kit. Can't afford that and the missus would crucify me lol. Must have new shocks or the car goes back to standard and PI's go on fleabay.

    problem you have is matching the rate of the shocks with the PI springs. adustable shocks would be the best thing.

    Try Motorsport World on 01357 529291, they have a website by the same name but I have always found it best to ring them. very helpful. If they don't have it they can usually find it.
