cabby shocks and springs

Postby 961tat » Mon Jan 09, 2017 11:47 pm

Hi folks

as anyone used f/k shocks as below from discount MG rover spares on offer at the moment , thinking of replacing all mind with new springs on 1994 214 cabby and they dont lower the car like a boy racer . :clapping

Rover 200 / 400 (R8) 89-97 inc Coupe Sports Suspension Dampers / Shock Absorbers - Full Set
Brand new set of Sports Shock Absorbers / Dampers for Rover 200 (89-95) / 400 (89-95) / Rover Coupe (91-98) models.
These are quality FK Germany items, priced to clear
This includes:
1x LH Front Shock Absorber
1x RH Front Shock Absorber
2x Rear Shock Absorbers

These items will firm up your suspension, and provide a subtle 15-20mm drop.

We recommend fitting these with lowering springs.

Hi guys, recently purchased a 1992 216 Honda cabby.... I wanted to drop her bit. Not to much, just enough to not look like it's on stilts!!! Any kits worth recommendations?
