Are there different levels of shortened strut/shocks? I have shortened going in the rear of mine with superlows and was thinking what do I use if I decide I wish to go lower, as I couldn't see any other part numbers/options with the manufacturer I went with (Boge).

Cheers Nick

I dont think each brand have more choice than standard and shortened, however some brands may be shorter than others. Some brands state that they do shortened shockers but they have the same part number for shortened and standard.

It's worth calling someone like Fulcrum and talking to them about it - I've had very good technical info from Fulcrum as well as excellent prices on gear (they were cheaper for my Bilsteins than the Aussie dealers!) - tho the workshop has left a lot to be desired - I guess the experienced guys are in the office answering tech questions on the phone and making good price deals while the young a*** LOSERS are left to stuff up peoples cars in the workshop....
