front shocks at RDENT, opinion?

PostPost by: Sbarron » Tue Feb 25, 2014 7:47 pm

Need new shocks, front, on 69 elan DHC.
Many choices. Have armstrongs on currently. Trying to get away without making spring compressor. Anyone tried or have opinion on the RDENT shocks. A bit costly. Worth it?

I have failed in a search. If previous link, just point me in the right direction.

What kind of shocks are they, and how much do they cost - each? I couldn't find any listed on his website.

I put them on the last car I did. I had no problems.

I just installed a pair from Ray,
T.T. shocks and spring set up with both adjustable dampening and spring seats. Very easy to install and adjust.

+1 on TT; I have found them to be a substantial improvement over stock, and prefer them to AVO or Spax.
