Firstly make sure you order any new shock absorber boots if yours are worn!

This kit was an xmas pressie so I hope its the same kit listed here.

As my 5 was already lowered when I bought it I have noticed little difference to the ride height but I have noticed that my old shocks were very tired. I now have a suspension set up that does soak up some of the imperfections in our roads but due to the amount of these imperfections any vehicle less than £250k will always struggle to handle them effectively! Fillings or no fillings!

Fitting:
A workshop manual is required.

A ramp would be ideal (I was lucky to have the use of one which helped when the old n/s/r shocker was seized to the bush and oxy cutting gear was required along with the regulation water squirters to cool the gas shock yes very interesting!)

A 12 mm drill bit is required to enlarge the top shock mountings and the boot top washer. (due to the increased diameter of the top thread). This was more time consuming than I thought it would be.

Spring compressors are required and I would recommend hiring/buying the smallest set as the new springs are a tighter fit.

Apart from the seized shocker I guess an hour a corner should see the job done. I do have experience so this could stretch a little if you are a novice. If you are unsure let a local garage do the job!

All in all I now enjoy driving my 5 again which as spring is on the way is a good thing. Bring forth a track day outing!

Note:
Improved handling, lowering and firmness will always take away comfort.
