standard shocks if in good condition are fine with a 40mm drop...no need to change them at all...

all these cheap 4 x shocks on ebay etc,shortened so say sport shocks are junk..not worth nowt...unless you can afford to fit..GAZ,AVO or Bilstein then keep your standard shocks,or even replace with standard ones if yours are knackered..

60mm drop is still fine on the standard shocks,but any lower the the shortened ones do come into play..
