i wouldnt get monroe, i did and there s**t, ride was a little better but went s**t after 1000km of driving,

today i bilsten shocks the shock cylinder is so thick, and u cant push the shock down. unlike cheap shocks the piston can easily be forced down but with thses it wasnt moving

Cant compare them with any other spring cos ill I've had is king . I got super and ultra low . There pretty good
I don't believe springs make a difference as their just coiled up metal ( between good brand springs not stock or s**t springs). Get a decent brand like king , Lovell , dobinsons.

However shocks play a major part in suspension. Such as ride quality handling .

KYB Gas + Kings SL front and SSL rear. They make AU's sit like this:

I have the exact suspension from that AU for sale too! PM Me if your interested, 6 months old, under 1/2 of what I paid, which was Cost + 10%!
