I haven't got the tools thought mate to do it so i can't what happens if i don't have these dampers then is it a shitty ride or something? and how much are dampers? i wanna try and work out how much it will cost me altogether to do it.

it will b really bouncy m8 and if anything the handling will get worse and wil rub more without dampers. ur looking at 200-250 for the full kit, dampers and srpings, u only need a jack and 3 spanners then. oh and wheel bar
