    Just like that we're already sold out of kits with stub axle. Expect another 10 kits to be here by mid Jan.

    I was a skeptic of all overseas offerings of coilovers till I heard about the Shockworks ones being developed over here.
    After exhaustive research on a lot of Toyota forums and feedback from other people on what was available and their pro's and con's I spoke to Brett and Chris at Shockworks.
    After talking to them both I was convinced that a locally designed and tested product was the way to go for me.
    After receiving the Shockworks coilovers I was impressed with the overall build quality and design. I was not prepared for how good they really are.
    I live in an area where road quality is below standard and has the potential to destroy wheels and suspension on a daily basis.
    After fitting my Shockworks coilovers and setting them up to my preferences I went for a drive.
    I couldnt wipe the grin from my face as I put them through their paces. The overall handling of my AE86 had been transformed to the point I didnt even release it was the same car.
    The initial turn in was nice and direct with good feedback through the wheel. The weight of the steering had not been affected but the turn in was much easier and more confident.
    The car stayed planted and stable through the corners and the ride felt more compliant through the rougher stuff that is common in this area.
    Braking was greatly improved requiring less effort as my front tyres were actually made to work to how they were designed.
    All in all I couldnt recommend these coilovers enough to people who have been waiting to fit some to their AE86 and even to the point I would tell them to sell of their old coilovers and go out and
    buy some Shockworks ones.
    That is how good they are.
    If you dont believe me read the Wheels Magazine article which compares the AE86 to the new 86.


    I can only point you in the right direction much like what these coilovers did for me and my AE86.
    Thanks again to Brett and Chris at Shockworks.

    If you want to check out my car there are pics up on the Shockworks Facebook page

    Appreciate the feedback Keith. We now have upgraded the rear shocks so adjustment can be done from the boot and 10 kits are now on there way scheduled to arrived early next month.

    Any chance of the rear shock update being sold seperate to those of us with the older style? My fingers are almost too fat to get in there
