    Jamex shock absorbers without the springs?

    Anyone know if you can get the Jamex shock absorbers without the springs?

    I've got the springs already but after getting more go's in a 'lowered with uprated dampers' MK4 I'm really keen to get mine changed aswell - the OEM shocks just can't cope with lowered springs.

    If I can't find them then I might ask LMF about it, otherwise it'd be as cheap to buy a set of Jamex springs and shocks then sell on a pair of springs!

    An eBay seller can do the full set of Jamex dampers for £158.99 delivered which I think is a very good price as the springs only cost me £55 new and delivered

    Found a seller on ebay selling the full kit including springs and dampers for £200 delivered to northern ireland, which may work out better to buy them and sell on your old springs? Their user id is performance3000.

    Curious, that's the seller who will do the shocks only for the price above!

    I've asked how much for a set of shocks and springs just to see...

    I'm still happy enough paying the £158.99 though...just depends on fitting costs a little though.

    Do it your self only 5 bolts aside on the front and one a side on the back. Cos you got lowering springs you wont need spring compressors

    Don't the front shocks need the springs out to change them? Or do I not need compressors because they're lowered springs?

    I know the rears are easy enough though.

    You have to take the shock and springs off the front. But cos you have lowering springs fitted already you can undo top nut easy. Thats if you have the 40 jamex springs anyway. I can say this cos I have just done a full car using 40mm jamex springs and compressor was not needed.


    But saying that if you are not 100% it prob would be safer and give piee of mind if you got some one else to do it.

    I've a friend or two locally that would likely help out though I do reckon I'd be OK on my own with the right tools.
