wanted se6a standard soft boring suspension

Post by michael1703 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 11:55 pm

I want to use my se6A more often

My faithful longterm partner* doesn't like my stiff suspension and is reluctant to get in and isn't very relaxed when chauffeured in it

So I'm looking for some standard shocks if anyone has any










*(I'm talking about my Labrador)

Are you sure it's shocks you want and not just softer springs ?

I doubt if the original shocks are available but you can always adjust "modern" ones for a soft ride - as for the springs uprated ones are the way to go - the originals will not last for more than a couple of years at best.

Are you sure it's a damper / spring issue and not a seizing trunnion/wishbone connection issue though, I've had my 5a up in the air for 6 months whilst working on it and now sits like a preying mantis with zero suspension movement and I'm sure it's down to seizing trunnion connections so a rebuild is on the way


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!
