I was just there today getting Shockworks installed! Yet to go for a real drive on them, but damn do they have some nice cars in there :o


Yeah some real nice skylines.. Going back to raise the car 5mm all round as Owen feels it's a tad low. Hit some twisties the other day, really loving the shockworks.

Ive found the dampness r4/f4 to be great or r4/f2 to be perfect on the street :)

I thought i was rolling pretty low on mine, yours puts me to shame G!!! haha!

Looks great though, really love the wheel colour with the banana yellow brembos behind, very nice touch :good:

Find this to be great on the wagon also, although i have softened it back to 0F-2R for a little more comfort.
I still am yet to go for a decent drive and really crank up the dampers just to see what it's like.

Thanks Ian. Going up by 5mm all round as I'm rubbing slightly. My settings are currently F:4, R:5 :D

Car was raised 5mm all round last week. That changed the way the dampers felt so i went back to 0F:0R. Have been updjusting up and down every couple of days to see what i like. Have to say I'm still impressed with how they feel. Each click makes a big difference. I have so much more confidence and am able to enter and exit corners a hell of a lot quicker then previously. Only thing i don't like is the little extra NVH the coilovers have introduced since they don't have the massive rubber dampers on the strut tops like OE do.

Hey Owen...
Do you have any of these left?
If so is it possible to PayPal you for them as I don't have it in cash right now (just did a complete suspension package on my landcruiser) but don't want to miss my chance to grab a set of these.

Hey all,

I'm interested to know how the ride feels before purchasing a set. Anyone on the Gold Coast have these on their wagon or sedan?
Currently running Ohlins on my wagon.

Cheers! :)

How adjustable is the ride height with these? Can you run stock ride height (of a 3.0RB sedan)?

I ask as I sometimes (rarely) travel on a gravel road for which I need the clearance.

Also whats the latest price?
