Best suspension set up?

Post by Millertech » Wed Mar 13, 2019 9:32 pm

Hi guys what’s going to be the best set up for suspension on my Caddy? Are the Gaz Shocks any good as they have adjustable dampers or are the bilsteins the best one to go for? Any help greatly appreciated!!

Bill steins mate, but check if they will be suitable for a working van with extra metallicy paint!

Good timing on this question as I was about to post on whether is should get Bilstein B8s to match my Eibach lowering springs; guess my mind is made up!!!

I run KW on mine and shortened Gaz adjustable rears on ultra low dark side lowering kit. Set up is brilliant and can 100% recommend. Ride is quality considering im running 20” wheee on 30 profile tyres

I have also used the STX front and rear kit which is also a quality set up for less than half the price of KW but are made by KW and use the same components but have an anodised finish as opposed to stainless/chrome finish. But ride is brilliant and I have not heard anyone having any issues with these either
