    Anything 40mm or more you should use shorter shocks!!

    Anything less than 40mm should be OK on standard ones but they will wear faster.

    Rich that aint very nice hehe. After collecting my VXR alloys today. I have to get them refurbed buy new ****** tyres and get new suspension. Before any of it can be fitted.

    :-(

    Your idea of standard suspension is brilliant, unfortunately i dont have a GSI or an SRI.

    I have an elegance so guess i would have to change shocks too.
