Lotus Elan

Elan Adjustable Shockers

PostPost by: JonnyPlus2 » Sun Aug 05, 2012 2:14 pm

Howdy All,
I am looking at new shockers for my coupe and I would really like ones that are adjustable while they are on the car. Also, since the roads around here (Canada) tend to deteriorate, I would like the standard comfy Elan ride to be there as a sort of baseline and a more track like setting to be available for . . . when I take him to the track.

Any comments by people who have owned adjustables would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Regards,

I replaced the stockers with Spax adjustables from RD. Originally installed them with stock springs but the car sat up way too high, even with the adjustable spring perches at the lowered setting. Ordered dropped springs and it sits just fine now.

Cheers,

I bought Tony Thompson Racing ones for my car, the fronts being supplied with springs and adjustable seats. I've just fitted them and they seem very good. Rear ones I went for TTR standard adjustable
I would recommend TTR without hesitation

+1, very happy with my TTR shocks.

I ran Spax fronts, both fixed and adjustable perches, ride height was a problem, adjustable perches impossible to move.
