i use the gaz gold pros on my vx, nice shock, comfortuble over bumps and not crashy.

the ones on the link are nickels, and are the model below the pros, i had them on the vx before the pros, decent enough but they do corrode, not instantly but they are not ali like the pros are. much better than spax, fk and the cheaper makes of coilover.

Basically wanna drop the rear about -80 to -90mm but not using custom springs if it can be helped and thought the coilovers may have a slightly better ride.

Probably better off contacting P1ck4d and get some from Gaz through him, he does good prices.

For 80-90mm, you will probably be better off with some shorter shocks, which Gaz will be able todo.

Anyone know the overall width of these? Wanna fit them to mine but clearance might be a issue.

I have GAZ GHA's from pick4d used daily and I find them hard but comfortable, depends how hard you set the shocks. Deffinately worth getting. Mine are set 15 threads up from the bottom of the thread on the bodies with a completely stripped rear interior and at a guess it's sitting around 60mm down on standard.

Kizza, if no one else has replied by the time I get home I'll measure the Width of mine for you

Gold's are a waste unless the car is PURELY track only. Even advised that by GAZ themselves. But if you really do want them, I can find out...

the golds have a better valving system and are not as crashy as the normal ones. the mono's on the other hand i would say they are a waste o. a car if its not a track car.

whether this is the same on the corsa varient of the coils i dont know. depends what the difference in price would be but id get golds all round personally.

I had them on the rear of mine, left them on softest damping, but had 450lbs springs
Was solid and not to crashy!

Btw, they do the extra low version which is what you need if you want to go lower than 60mm.

The ones in the advert look like normal height ones, also wording is misleading. The GHA kit is only bump adjustable not rebound too.
