    seen a set for very cheap on ebay and i like the sound of them,but info and feedback on the web is scarce.

    I fitted a pair on the rear of a SAAB 95 estate about 18 months ago, I only test drove the car for a short difference and the old ones were absolutely cream crackered - but I thought that they were really good...

    The guy still has the car and we have had no complaints or problems since...

    Not as firm as some shocks (when fitted with standard springs), but improve the handling without compromising the ride quality too much

    was thinking of fitting them in conjunction with eibach springs...want it a bit lower with the handling benefits...but trips to the chiropracter are not on the agenda lol.
    nice to hear they retain good ride characteristics

    I only fitted them in conjunction with standard springs - but they seemed OK to me..

    Good luck with it Mark
