Upon removal of the shocks we noticed the one shock was buggered completely and then only did I order the bilsteins shocks. It might be the setting on the shock then as you say, but I am not sure how the shocks will have to be set?
    read previous posts & picture, the shocks should be at lowest setting. The cradle should be as far down as possible...

    Thanks, I will have a look at the shocks and see where this craddle is set to.

    If not at the lowest setting - does the whole assembly need to be taken apart or can it be adjusted whilst still installed to the vehicle?

    Mooi man, dan het daai Seikel suspensie minder as 100k km op...

    Othou Seikel is deur VW getoets.

    Die ander nie en dan kry jy vrae as jy goedkoper goed insit...

    It would be very interesting to do a comparison between some of the Aussie suspensions and the Germans. I have the Seikel Desert fitted with Eibach coils and shocks and it is superb. I even had a west coast farmer tannie in the bakkie a while back, she commented that it felt like a Mercedes on the dirt road we were on. High praise indeed, I think?

    The germans just really seem to understand shocks and suspensions. When the time comes to upgrade I will most probably fit the Bilsteins because I haven't seen the Eibachs for sale anywhere. BUT, if someone were to show me how good an Ironman setup is in comparison, I will be very willing to change.

    Perhaps on the V6 that I'm trying REALLY hard to convince myself I don't need..

    the entire assembly will need to be removed and taken apart... If done by someone that knows what they are doing it shouldn't take long

    This is how my coils compared that came from Mikem(Darryl).

    Not longer but just more turns in coil that came from them.

    I have also fitted an Arb delux relacement bar and it only dropped 12mm in front.

    Hope this helps.

    Mine is exactly like that but longer, Darryl had supplier issues at the time but managed to get me longer coils... Give him a call and see what he has for you... Im sure he will remember me as he couriered coils back and forth multiple times to assist me .
