    Exclamation Looking a new Suspension Setup, Thinking about this Spax Kit......

    The Spax PSX Adjustable Damping Kit. Its got on car adjustable damping. Just wondering if anyone has this Kit, or has heard any good or bad comments about it. The kit I think is around £420 depending on where you buy it. Are is their any better Kits out their for around the same money.

    Even on their soft setting, Spax are much harder than standard.

    Although the combination is rare, Spax also give problems when used with standard height springs - they're designed for lowered springs and the short travel causes problems otherwise.

    Those are the coil overs are they not? I was going for these as they are stainless steel for the adjuster the likes of the FK will start to rust But they wanted 3 weeks to make them up!? Seen as its only a couple of threads that hold the height i would go for the spax meaning a year down the line you can still adjust the ride height and not spend hours cleaning the threads (technically reducing the effectiveness of the threads not something you want to happen really) before you can adjust it but i to have heard that they are really hard,i think if you want coil overs go for Koni but they are at a price, i went for a complete Eibach setup

    Hatch is "same" as saloon, as far as suspension goes.
