Virtual shopping time!
Thanks to a good friend (isuzurover,some may know him on other BBs)
I have the chance to get 4 shock absorbers from US,wider choice,
better prices,no issues with VAT,duties,fees,whatever,just the cost of the shocks.
Too good to say no...
So I could ride the wave and buy some blingy toys.
Good Keith suggested Bilsteins 7100s,but they're too $$$ for my budget...
Then I am considering these:
they come with reservoir which is not bulky,close to the body and can be set in any position (top)
they come at 99.50 USD from eshocks
they are available in 6.5" to 14" travel
pin>eye adaptors are needed (can fab) but I like the idea,easier for maintenance...
2 choices of valving only: 255/70 or 170/60
never seen them fitted to a D90 (!)
As I don't have the slightest clue of whater this is a proper valving or not for my application...
...opinions are welcome.
The Cube is a DD.
Spring rate is 170 lbs./inch on every corner (17.71" for a roughly +2" lift)
Here I presume stiff shocks would compensate...but when "stiff" is too "stiff"???
Bolt-on goodies include the 8274 on custom bumper,sliders,and-assuming I'll ever find the way-Husky in the rear
Exo shock mountings from Keith...yum...or custom made...maybe...in a future...
I am just playing with some ideas...so,should I be completely wrong for some reason,feel free to:
-teach me (tell me why!)
-suggest alternative options (preferably cheap)
