Okay, so I took my car to mechanics to have a look over.. He mentioned how I should get shortened shocks to suit my springs.
What shocks should I go for? My springs are the touring springs by pedders ..
Also where would be the best place to purchase from? Theres not real local suspension dealerships around here..
Thanks

If the springs are heavy duty (heavier than std FE2) then give Monroe GT Sport a try (not GT gas).
The Sport are to be used with stiffer lowered springs and are designed to give these heavier springs a slightly softer ride.
The sport are a little too soft for stock or FE2 springs as they are purposely built to compliment heavier springs.

Bursons if you have one there, or on here through Greg from GSL Rallysprot. You could always check the KYB website for distributers nearby. I got mine from Bursons, they were the cheapest.
