To make this thread a bit clearer, I have HAD to buy some new dampers, I bought Mike Satur's blue Spax kit, this thread is the after-fit review.

Thought I'd start a new one for this.

First impressions......I had them set on the softest settings to start off with, choppy ride has gone, but still stiff, but too soft for me so I've cranked them up 4 clicks (28 available), I'll see what thats like on Monday. The mudflaps are catching on long suspension travel, maybe the tweak will reduce that. The position of the adjuster means they can be tweaked with the wheels on with a nice long screwdriver.
before..........

after...........


how to to follow when I get time

yes, quite a bit, I've put my long screwdriver in the boot ready :lol:

Looks a tad lower now?
yes, altho I always thought that the SP1 was never any where near 10mm lower.

Your car is dirtier than mine :fishslap:

I'd be interested to see a pick of the entire car with lowered suspension!

A good days work eh :broon:
I'll try and remember to take a full side on pic mike.
I started yesterday at about 5pm and finished at about 8:30pm actually, really struggled to remove the o/s top nut.

Looking forward to seeing that pic!
