    I would go for spax as they have brought out a new range recently, they may be slightly more money but you will get decent service from them if you have any problems.

    only think with spax is that the rear height is not adjustable.

    Mate, I have Spax RSX kit .... DONT GET SPAX !

    I have had nothing but probs with em, two front shocks have popped and on this single occasion, i disagree with Mat, that Spax and where you bought em are really reluctant to replace them! also on rear shock knacked up too! As Ben said the rears are NOT height adjustable which they told me they were! I eventually had to get FK rear adj springs! The ride was uncomfortable too no matter what stage the dampning was at!

    I wish i would have gone with FK now mate and I know someone put a thread up showing the corrosion on FKs but as long as they are well greased and WD40'd, they will be ok.

    IMHO go for FK, you WILL be dissapointed with Spax!

    thats my 2p worth mate

    if you go for FK's then make sure you copper grease them to hell and cover the main metal body and spring too, otherwise this will happen....
