I have lowered my 72 bay.

I have measured the maximum and minimum distance bewteen shock absorber mounting points with the van in the air and on the ground.

front is 270mm and 330mm
rear is 400mm and 490mm


Can anyone advise me on what shock absorbers to buy please.


Thanks

Graham

KYB GR2 Gas Shocks get good ratings. I have run the SPAX 28 point adjustables before and they were very good.

To get the correct length you need to take the measurement with the bus on the floor from the centre of shock mount top to bottom which I think youíve done where the front is 270mm and the rear is 400mm. You then need at least 50mm of travel in both directions.

Your front must be really quite low then...
