You are better off getting a set of ZR dampers, and getting some diesel lowering springs.Hi all, I was wondering if I can put lowering springs straight onto my R200 (bubble shape) or would that damage the dampners?! I haven't a clue about any of this modification stuff so I apologise!!
Any info on this would be great!
Yes you can do that, but you will drasitcally reduce the life of standard shocks.You can fit a set of Eibach lowering springs straight onto you standard damper without any adverse effect they will give 30mm drop on standard.
Eibach are the only company i've ever come across to make diesel specific springs MAKE SURE they are for the 200 and not the 25 as i'm led to believe they are different.
No better than anything else i have driven, to be honest.Skelo,
Not argueing that any lowering on standards shocks won't reduce their life span but why are the 25 unit any better?
Now i understand :broon:Skelo,
What i'm asking is are they better damper unit eg give stiffer more stable ride than standard 200 shock units?
i've had to change mine on my 400 to the zs180 units because i could not get a set of lowering springs from Eibach to fit the 400 shock units as they have now discontinued that particular kit.:sad2:
was led to believe the that the zr/zs dampers are stiffer than the 25/45 to give a more sporty ride/handling is that true?
200 bubbles aren't too bad for regular driving but start to get a bit twitchy when you push them :shake:Now i understand :broon:
I have heard the same as you, the R25 etc, has suppossedly a better suspension than the equivalent R200 etc. Never driven a R200 bubble, so can't confirm or deny the theory.
