why oh why did i not fit these when i bought the t4..
they make a monumental differance,every corner-every bump in the road-every braking point. i have been on a long 2 weeks in devon and cornwall 2 bikes on the back fully loaded for 2 weeks, and it seemed to bounce a lot, i could feel every bump in the counry roads and on the way back we went to bugjam at santa pod and the road to santa pod felt like a landrover test track, so when i got back i went online with t4srus and noticed that bilstein b4 shox cover for lowered vehicles too...job done...well recomend them..A:

I have Gaz djustables and if im honest they are a pain, i can never seem to get the settings right, and am seriously considering a change, was thinking Sachs HD but like you allways thoght that the B6 were the only ones to have. Some food for thought there. T:
I don't have any issues with the Gaz ones, got them set pretty much near the hardest setting and the van handles like a go kart

If you lived by me, you would not like them on the hardest settings that is why i want to chnge then as the balance is hard to get.
They are good shocks but setting em is a pain, i am seriously considering changing, i have notched top plates allready.
