Anyone have any expreriance with SPAX?

I am considering ordering a set from the UK. They lower the car 2"... I am not too concerned about ride quality because the roads around here are very smooth and I am vey experianced driving low, having two lowriders currently.

I will also change the shocks out but which ones to use? I will need a shortened shock... Any sujestions? I have heard the SPAX shocks suck the big one...

i would go with H&R's. they are of very good quality and the ride is great when installed with a fresh set of bilstein's.

I hear that alot of DeLorean owners have been installing Spax on their cars but having to order from the UK is the issue. I've had Eibach on my car for quite a while but went back to OE for the restoration of my '84 euro 500SEL. Firm ride but now it's how the car rolled of the assembly line.
I'm just getting old and with two child seats in the car, I can't look like a lowrider anymore. JMO. Jono took my Eibachs and found them a new home.

Regards,
