Hi all. I’m new to this forum but Have owned my el wagon a few years now, it’s got to be the best car I’ve owned to date. My question is, what’s the best and most cost effective suspension upgrade? My struts up front are soft but not leaking so still passes our warrant of fitness checks but the ride has become increasingly rougher. Stock suspension at the moment with cut coils and 2”blocks with reset leaves in rear and sits nice, I want to keep with the lower look.

Will xr6 struts fit?

Thanks all for your time. Tom

Replace the stock shocks with some proper short body shocks.

Great, thanks. Do you know of a website I could look into for pricing etc? I’d imagine it would be cheaper for me to shop on line then ship to nz. Thanks for the reply. Tom

Cant go past koni reds. Few more $$ than your standard gas strut but well worth the money
