    Default 80 GX Suspension Questions Please

    Hi Guys

    Apologies for yet another Thread, almost similar to my "Spacers" one.

    1)............I have a 97 80 GX Diesel that looks "afdraande", I may be wrong, but it just stands a bit nose down for me.

    2).....The coils may have sagged a bit?

    3)......I have newish coils from a 76 v8, will they fit (obviously only the fronts)?

    4).........I'm busy having the shocks tested, if not 100% I'll put new Monroe Magnums, so that's fine.


    .........Or do I just have the coils tested, and if necessary replace with fresher 80/105 Series original coils??

    I'm not overly keen on an aftermarket suspension like OME or Ironman.........I'm just not.

    The 80 drives great, no issues. I will however want to replace the shocks if even remotely necessary, and definitely also the steering damper - car feels "jittery" (very little but still) over a pothole.

    THANKS

    Just got the 80 back from the shock shop.

    Shocks and rubbers etc etc are all 100%.

    Silly question - how does one test a coil(s), if it has sagged??

    My pel by die shock shop se ek verbeel myself, die 80 le nie afrdaande nie.

    Kar ry lekker, soos 'n 80 moet, geen ge swayery of bumpety bumpetness nie. Steering damper is dalk so bietjie klaar, soos ek se hy voel half jittery oor slaggate.

    Mind you....hoe meer ek hom nou kyk hoe straighter begin hy vir my ook lyk

    Eks maar net vol akkas, besig om al weer te over analyse.

    My shock shop pel was dalk toe reg.

    Petri staan hulle nie maar effens so nie? Myne het ook so gestaan met sy OME suspensie. Dan is hulle meer gelyk wanneer hulle gelaai is.

    Ek weet jy hou nie van aftermarket nie, maar jy moet dalk na Tough Dog se Return to Centre damper kyk. Ons het al so paar verkoop, maar almal was baie happy met die resultaat.

    Petri

    As jy die kas Jack an box sigarette uit die boot haal sal hy dalk baie meer level staan, of jy moet net voor in gaan sit

    As jy wheel arch tot rim meet, hoe lyk die afmetings? as dit jou nog regtig pla.

    Ek dink daai 80 lyk mooi, en level.

    Petri dit is bietjie van 'n upgrade op n steering damper. dit is 'n Damper met n coil spring by om die stuur terug te bring na centre as jy gedraai het. Hier is 'n video oor die produk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8lxnctB83g

    Die 80 en 105 gebruik dieselfde part en ek het. EK kan vir jou stuur as jy belangstel.
