I have a VU SS ute. It has 20inch wheels and has been lowered using king springs..I have not found out what the shocks are..but..although the car handles great..this combo of big wheels and lower stiff springs also means I feel every bump on the road.
My question is..is it possible to get a decent ride with the big wheel/lowered combo..if so..what are the best shock to go for?...
Its not really possible unless you go back to standard height springs with standard socks.
The shocks that came standard in most commodores/utes are OEM made by monroe.
I have installed lowered monroe GT sport with the super low kings. (monroe actually work with kings for best performance as they are tested in the factory with king springs)
But I have heard the best to go for are the KYB lowered shockers. They have a bigger price tag than the GT sport though.
But yeah, with all lowered shocks/springs you will feel more bumps ect...
The GT sport are actually quite smooth aswell as performance.
