    I have retitled andd moved this thread so that it complies with forum posting rules

    Shortened dampers are only required when going beyond a 40mm drop.

    Jamex have been around for donkeys years and I've heard mixed reviews. Looking at the price they seem fair

    I should imagine your mate probably went for a 60mm drop to experience his vehicle bottoming out. You should be fine with a 40-35
