Anyone using or has used AVO adjustable shocks for their race Elans?

I used them on a road car (rear strut inserts) and found them to be very poor and AVO to be extremely rude an unhelpful when you called their technical department.

The issue I had is that adjustment was completely different from one side to the other, in terms of number of clicks so you had to mess around by trial and error to balance them.

But the main issue was they would 'go off' with even moderate fast road use.

Personally I would never use them again.

I had problems with "crumbling bushes" and they supplied me with new "modified bushes" gratis.
