Mixing suspension

I think My front shocks need replacing as it looks to low. I have a set of new sprins so just need dampers. On the rear I have Protech, Should I get the same for the front or can I fit the Lotus units? Cant really afford to do all 4 at the mo.

Thanks

Chris

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

I have Protechs on my car, for about a year now and still can't fault the product. But, and it's a big but, if you are unsure on setting them up, go with the Lotus ones. Protechs after sales support is non existent, there are some idiosyncrasys setting them up which without prior experience would be quite an issue.

It's a pity really because the product seems good.

Bear in mind that the damper/shock has no influence at all on the ride-height. Its controlled purely by the springs and the platform they sit upon. So if you replaced the damper like-for-like the ride height would remain identical.

Steve,

Are you saying I could just replace the springs? i.e take the old dampers off have them powder coated and reuse?
