Shocks fitted with the bottom of the Spring seat locking nuts at 1" from bottom of the threads it all seemed a bit close and didn't leave much room for movement.




So back in the garage and lifted by 1/2" to 1 1/2" inches




Looked better but it was getting dark and it still seemed a bit low, so back into garage and raised to 2" inches



Now given that the springs are likely to settle a little over time, i'll leave it at this for the moment.

Took it for a quick blast down the road and back and it really does feel a lot better on the rough roads around here!
I'll have to take it further the next time it's dry, but happy for now!

Dave Congratulations/commiserations on selling your car.

I hope you got a good price free from German interference.
