If your budget will allow I'd recommend Koni shocks.

Out of the 3 I have had:

Kings<<Pedders<Lovells

Pedders have a higher spring rate than the King springs. Both the lovells and the Pedders rode better and were more comfortable than the Kings, with Lovells being the best. The Kings were noticably more harsh over bumps. In saying that I have pedders sitting to go in my current car because I got a bargain on them from ebay.

It doesn't matter what springs you use if you chuck a set of Ultima shocks or some other s**t...Will still handle like a**. If you are on a budget better to go with Kings (being cheapest) springs and better shocks/struts.

Lovells are a progressive wind spring, Kings are static, I CBF typing an essay, but a google search on each of those terms will tell you all about it. Progressive wound springs are better and more predictable.

My rear's have done exactly that, with 5 years of abuse, towing heavy loads, and a gas tank in the boot too. Shocks are good, pedders white comfort gas all round. Much better than the monroe gt gas I had before.

The shocks you run will make a big difference to the ride quality.

Cheers

Call up a few places like Repco, Bursons & so on, to get the price. They will probably be a buy in line, so be prepared to wait for a quote.
