Suspension

Post by Scoobi25 » Fri Feb 04, 2022 11:42 pm

This year I will be replacing front and rear shocks and springs on my Mk2 Scala from the lowered set up as its far to stiff for my liking and also scrapes the wheel arches when cornering. I'm thinking of going back to a totally standard set up so any suggestions from anyone running standard would be greatly appreciated like what make and where to by from in the UK.

I’ve got a new standard rear set up and used good front if you want to try them?

Yes, down in Dorset. They are still on a Scala I’m breaking but if you need them I can get them off.
