Did you buy this kit but with the adjustable dampers? http://www.minisport..._SUSCKIT04.html

Is it any good? Been thinking of upgrading my suspension with it.

yes similar...mine has Gaz shocks

to be honest the rear camber plates were not very good and i have replaced them already and i should have bought adjustable bottom arms...so learn as you go

thats what this forums all about :D
