    Hi,

    I'm interested to hear your thoughts on suspension kits or shock replacements to get a little more body control out of the chassis.

    Anyone know if the shocks/springs of the latest (lowered) models compare well, or if aftermarket manufacturers are a better way to go.

    cheers

    I have to agree. I went from old (non lowered) to H&Rs and Konis and tried a few combinations.

    The ride is less harsh than the latest lowered suspension but is still firm and stops the rolling/diving I used to suffer.

    It's tried and tested and you have to be brave/confident/perhaps even foolhardy to go with something else.

    Cheers Guys,

    I think ultimate aim is do something about body control without affecting ride quality too much. I drive the car daily and last thing I need is crashy ride.

    So in conclusion sounds like H&R springs with Koni shocks is the way to go...now to work out the damage!

    I have H&R springs and Koni shocks on my TT. I have done 35k miles with no problems (20k per year). It is firmer than normal but still fine...
