    Gabriel shocks

    Has anyone use gabriel shocks w/lowering springs. I haven't seen anyone talk about gabriel at all. I have use them on an old 4x4(back in the 80's), but not on any car.

    That's just begging for trouble. Crappy shocks on stock springs is bad enough, on lowering spring that demand more damping and need it in lesser amounts of travel is even worse.

    Sam- Thanks for saying something about the shocks. I didn't think it was a good choice of a shocks. I will soon get with you about buying a shock/L-spring combo. Thankx

    Happy to help. There are great shocks, and decent shocks. The trick is what you expect and do with the springs.

    You don't want springs that require great shocks on decent shocks, it simply overwhelms them over time.
