thanks guys, do you know what hight you can go in the springs before you have to replace the shockers with longer shocks? Thanks Deano

2inch lift will not require any special ,ie: longer shocks ,however if your 93 mod hasnt had shocks replaced would realy sugest a new set all round ,old shocks are bound to fail very quickly once u fit the "new" 2inch lifted springs ,,whole job is easy as ,allow a sat arvo and a 6 pack if u havent done it before.

If you have standard shockies on your 80 series you will find that they will be too short for the 2 inch lift springs... They really do pull up too short compared to after market ones which will suit the 2 inch lift fine.

If you want to test the theory get a shockie off your car and an aftermarket one and extend them both fully and compare the lengths..

I had the standard shocks on my 80 and didn't think too much of it until I compared how much longer the after market ones were.. and don't think the car doesn't use the full length of the shock either.. just jack the corner of the car up and measure how far it goes up with the standard shock and then take the shocker off and try again... it will give heaps more articulation.

Mind you "NEW" springs are cheap as chips anyway so why would you put a second hand set of springs on your car in the first place?

Cheers

Because they are 6 months old and free. Beats $400+ for a set of 0 month old ones in my view.

Could have done 100,000k though.
