Default Which GAZ Shocks

Now we have no info and I can't remember what people have used, what shocks did you use. On the website they give a list of 8, GT, GAI, GS, GA, GP, GOLD, GHA Kits, GAA.

Also was it 14" open 9.5" closed with a 1" stop

Spring rates: rear - 225lb
front - can't remember at all

Best place to buy, direct, rally design ect?

Many thanks

go to dampertech speak to dave and ask for the haynes roadster suspension kit. pay the money and the correct ones will appear next day.

i have the actual part numbers on the boxes i will check in the morning.

the rear springs i have are 200 and the front are 275. thats based on an 80kg driver and pinto up front. if you are more than 80 kg i suggest you up the rears to 225

Bear in mind that the spring rate is something you need to know. The other thing that you need to know about springs is the unfitted length.

Many thanks guys, I weigh 95Kg so I would go with 225, pinto up front.

Thought I would post as there is nothing left in this part of the forum.
