My Puma flew just through the MOT this year so I'm going to treat it to a suspension upgrade. Probably just uprated shocks (Koni STR.T if I can find some) but not sure whether to do the springs as I get the feeling the stock springs are quite decent and I don't want too hard a ride.




Does anyone know what the stock spring rates are?

Well, I think Koni STR.T's are long gone now so looking at other options but there doesn't seem to be much around. Bilstein's would be nice but well expensive, has anyone got anything to say on Spax adjustables?

Can you not find any Eibachs?
Their original Puma option setup lowered approx 30mm

I probably would go for the Eibach's if I was doing springs but I've had good results on another car doing just the shocks, just need something better than stock. The Puma's my daily car so I don't want to trash the ride too much.

I plumped for the Bilstein's in the end.
