I picked up 2nd hand set of pedders coils from an 80 series for $50 today. I think that they will fit my 100 series cruiser, and for 50 bucks I thought I would take the chance, they are meant to be a 50mm lift and look to be in excellent condition. My question is are the coils left and right handed and if so how do I tell which goes on which side. I wouldn't thought they would be, it's just the bloke showed me his new kings coils which were marked left and right.
Thanks in advance

80 series and 100 series run same shocks and springs , There are left and right , one is longer than the other , if you ring Advantage suspentions in Moorabin , Nathan will be able to let you know which goes were . From memory long does to drives side , but ring Nathan to make sure Venus Bay

Although the springs do fit, on the 100 series the rear ones are heavier than an 80.
So if your 50mm lift springs were the heavey duty ones for an 80, on your 100 they are only Medium duty. I swapped mine but fitted Polyair bags to carry the extra weight. Craig..............

Thanks Guys I'll throw them in tomorrow. If they are no good I can take them back. I'm really only trying to improve load carrying as I have found that stock rear coils sag almost soon as I place any camping gear in there at all and is really bad once I hook up my camper.

Start looking for new shox, as the 100 shox are a little short once you start playing with ride height. Any aftermarket shock will be 50mm longer than what you have, and that equals 50 more mm travel down, front is not as bad because it has limited travel, but rear can travel alot more than the stock shock will let it.
A few good ones to consider is OME, Munroe,tough dog, etc ,etc.
