There are many suggestions which one to fit, but ever happened that more than few people agreed upon same setup which suits GTT. Lets see what you have to say...

I use Spax RSX  Coilovers, no complaints from me, my brother had them on his old GTT thats why i got them, don't like the way the Avo's are made myself.
I also had Spax top adjustables with 50mm springs & they were very good as well.

I can just say that SPAX are least spread among GTT owners considering UK shock manufacturers. A lot of owners on RTOC say that Koni's are the best solution and in same time say that AVOs or GAZs are crap and vice versa. So i really don't know what to say :roll:

AFAIK Fk Automotive have whole technology from Koni coilovers and all they do is modify shock housing to fit GTT. This case is only on models Koningspot X and SilverlineX.

Steve, how rear of the car is doing on RSXs?

I have Apex and can say that suspension is really sucks :x

Choose one and click "submit vote". It must work.

A problem apears,as the shock (as a force) goes directly to the articulations/body/welding...therefore it may be wise,if the streets are bumpy to set it to soft !

Yeah, but there are hundred of combinations. Some say that is great to put shocks on hardest setup and buy very soft springs.

Hard setting on shocks prevents car to dive on curves and soft spring handles bumps on roads smoothly.

Springs have 2 main jobs :
1. hold the car to a certain level (hold weight)
2. rebound the shock to it's standard position

Shoks have 1 :
Handle with sudden variations in weight distribution ! (variations that may come from above - steering,or from beneath - bumps)
