Hey guys,

Ive had my fairlane lowered for about 1 year now, with king springs ultras in the rear and supers in the front with Monroe gt sport shocks. Slowly slowly its been getting more and more bumpy compared to say 3 months ago. People have told me that my shocks could be gone cause its so low!!

So after hearing this from several people ive been looking at koni shocks but i wanted to hear peoples opinions about koni and how they rate against Monroe.

Cheers Lowlane98

If you need to ask the question.....................
Koni is miles ahead of Monroe. The only thing better then a set of Konis is a set of Bilsteins.

Based on that fact my Mum is the best around!

excellent, thanks for that :)

So bumpiness, cornering and normal driving would be a a massive improvement compared to Monroe?

it doesnt help that your running on superlows with std stroke shocks, that alone would pretty much stuff the shocks..

no matter what, with superlows its always going to be a harsh bumpy ride..
if you want comfort dont go with h/d lowered springs...
