    Default whats the score with B4's & 45mm springs???

    After reading many threads regarding shocks/springs I am lead to believe that I can't use B4's with my -45 Pi's due to a bottoming out issue but can use B4's with -35's ? If this is the case, Is the problem at the front or rear? Has anyone actually had this problem personally...or better still..is anyone using a B4/-45 setup with no probs..

    You should be using B6 for a 45mm lower, definitely.

    If your lower than -30 then im sure you'll have to go to B6's rather than B4's, as B4's are a better replacement than the OEM shocks and the B6's are the replacement sports shocks im sure some-one will correct this if im wrong.

    Replies much apprieciated guys but doesn't answer the question. Sure I'd like something a little better than std gsi shocks, and B6's would be fabulous.. apart from they cost 2 and half times as much as B4's

    I'm still curious wether the problem is with the front or rear... If it's just the fronts, B4's could be modified easily to give a shorter stroke.

    I've just fitted Pi 45mm/40mm springs and B4's on the rear,not changed the front shocks and everything's fine,once the fronts go i'm replacing with the B4's also,can't see if being a problem as the springs only drop my motor by 30mm/25mm as being the sri setup its already dropped 15mm,so yours would be the same m8 imo,hth.............

    cheers glenboy, can you do your fronts before i do mine I think its down to the gsi/sri shocks being shorter than other vec shocks and that b4's only come in one size (people please shout up if I'm wrong).. I would have thought if -45/40 springs give probs the 35's would be very close too.
