    Anyone fitted Gaz shocks?
    Checking for feedback .
    Thinking of trying them on the lowered square back ( type 3)
    Needs a bit of compression adjustment.

    @cbus
    Col
    What are you after?
    A lowered shock that has more travel? As in your stock shock is too compressed?

    Yeah.
    A. Lowered shock.
    Only 1 1/2" compression travel
    B. Stiffer compression to make up for lack of spring tension on the short travel.
    C. Not harsh like kyb.

    Konis are my normal choice for a good shock but lack the compression stiffness for this application.
    Some/ or more, of issue will be wrong working area of standard length shocks but there is also a need to have, in effect , a stiffer compression stroke without being harsh.
    On a normal height bay , bilstiens have this quality with good control and no harshness.
    So thought I'd risk the gaz given the gas pressure will act to resist downward movement
    ( hopefuly not harsh ) and a good range of easy adjustment in both directions. ( So I can play for days :D)

    Also price was discounted last week but none in stock for few weeks. :rolleyes:
