Coil-over shock absorber with a chrome plated spring.
SSP coilover is a shock absorber fitted with a chrome plated assistance spring. Most often used on Bajas, buggies and trikes. The lower spring mount allows a small amount of tension adjustment. C spanners are included for adjusting.
It is very important to fit the correct length shocks to a lowered car. There must be at least 2 inches of up and down travel from the normal ride height. To ascertain what length you require you must measure the distance between the shock mountings on your vehicle after you have removed the existing shock. This must be done with the vehcile on its road wheels (not on a jack). Once you have measured you need to check it against te shock absorbers we list to see which ones you need.
Prior to fitting new shock absorbers always pump it through a few strokes the correct way up. This removes bubbles that may have formed in the fluid whilst in storage and improves the effectiveness.
