Old s**tty bits - you can play the accordion with the shocks

I'll probably let a garage do the fronts as I don't have spring compressors and have been told the drivers side is a pain...
took me 3 hours, some new scars and a lot of swearing but very enjoyable.

Quick test drive and it already feels better over bumpy bits!

Now this could be an easy way of me getting the extra ride height for the Dune/Allroad project.

Does anyone know the model number that gives an increased height on spidans? The front is high enough already, i just need to raise the rear. Thanks
