i have zr160 shocks and 35mm avo springs. in all it would lower a zr 35mm, but all together has lowered my 200 55mm! the drop is perfect, handling is v good, but a little harsh if you don't like feeling every ant that you run over. lol

You could get the gmax shocks, sell the gmax springs you get with the kit and buy the avo springs. This is what i'm thinking about doing in the summer

i really want to do this, have been thinking about it for ages. how much for zr shocks? new dampers wouldnt be required then?

And would Vi shocks be ok with zr avos??

ive just bought a set of zr TD shocks for my derv... from an 03 plate car..... 35 per corner.... so compared to buying them new... very cheap.

if you had ZR shocks there would be less of a need to change ure dampers as they are uprated from 200/25 spec cars except the 25 GTI and possibly the 200Vi.

i will take a couple tomorrow!
if you don't want to pay over the odds...... just search through all the "for sale" areas on the forums. i picked up zr160 shocks and springs v cheap! then as i said i got the avos. it just depends how much time and patience you have, its worth it cos the shocks cost me less than a full tank of petrol :bgrin2: plus a tank to pick them up!
