Ride: Falcon EL Option 20

Location: Redcliffe, Brisbane
QLD, Australia

Hey,

Changing my shock and spring set up on EL falcon. Just wondering on which is better (just a cruiser car, nothing serious). I can get the boges alot cheaper than the Munroe's but which is better for comfort, durability etc? Going to be running XR6 springs or King lows on it.

Currently have Ultra-lows with STD shocks and it's painful to drive.

Looking forward to your input.

Josh.

my experience. Munroes are s**t, rough as guts and dont suck up bumps quick enough so the steering gets rough as well.

Ive used Boge are there alright but KYB is pretty good and not as soft on the rear like the boge

I bought Munroe Gt-Sport shocks for my old EF XR6 and they were brilliant. Bit more expensive than regular GT-Gas shocks but worth it IMO.

You guys that are running XR6 height, do you scrape on things? I am currently finding my Fairlane is a bit too low for my liking, but do like the look of a slightly lowered car.
