    Did i read correct that its possible to use different Stub axles (RA40 i think it was). I only have stock brakes atm so im thinking ill upgrade the whole lot in 1 hit if you could offer any advice or a service to accommodate bigger brakes.

    Any help appreciated. We can move into PM's if you like.

    These struts fit pretty much all stub axles from the 80's Datsun/Nissan/Toyota. So yes there are a lot of front end options available.

    Will PM

    Any more official details of peoples perception on your setup Chris.

    I know its only new, but when looking at available options your setup does not have alot of opinions from users. Unless im looking in the wrong places.

    I don't think it's a hard decision to make...

    it's a custom built solution for our cars...

    it's not a shock designed for another car that goes alright or a one size fits all generic option with slightly different valving as in the case of BC coil overs...

    These are built/valved specifically for the cars we own/love...

    The one thin that has me quite interested is the response of the shock...giving us the ability to reduce spring rates and let the shock do the work rather than the spring/swaybars that most people have relied on for years now...

    I know I want these and I have made it publicly clear in various threads and Facebook...I just can't justify the 2k on them while my car is still a near bare shell waitin for love and attention...

    Anyone in the market for coilovers ATM would be silly to not be buying these IMHO...and if you weren't buying them
    I'd love to know what you are buying because I believe that neither of the higher end options readily available (bc er series/bilstein/greddy) stack up to the quality of these!

    Once again outspoken by my...Chris might well correct me or go further into the details regarding the shock response...

    My biggest lol is the 30 stage adjustment generics on the market...

    how many of them actually change how the shock functions other than making a clicking sound???

    That 30 stage adjustment could well turn out to be nothing more than 10 stage and 20 clicks o nothingness...

    Off topic none the less and apologies to the shock works crew...

    Thanks for the love John, if you're ever up in vic i'd be glad to take you for a spin in one of our test rigs. You've actually summed it up very well. In regards to the whole adjustment thing you're completely right aswell, more clicks just offer a slightly finer range of adjustment. We have found however that in the majority of aftermarket dampers the adjustment range is usually still quite small(a click doesn't always equal how much it changes), we offer 12 clicks which we feel is a good balance.
