Hi all. Long time since posting.

I'm planning on taking the Falcon to the snow this year and in order to not shred it with snow chains I was going to put some standard height (maybe heavy duties cos I gotta load the thing up) springs in the back and ditch the superlows. Keen to hear any opinion of how that might handle with shortened Bilstein shocks. I have driven with normal shocks and sl's and as many probably know its a bit crap. Just so long as the other way around isn't any worse :P

When I put my short monroes in I checked one against the factory XR shock and the shorter ones had more compression, obviously, but they both had the same extension, so I cant see why not.
